NANNY IS SURE DANNY
THE silvery light of sweet Mis
tress Moon Hooded the Green
Meadows and chased the Black
shadows clear back to the very
edges of the Green Meadows. It
was just such a night as a Meadow
Mouse loves, and Nanny Meadow
Mouse would have enjoyed It and
rejoiced In It and been thoroughly
happy hut for one thing. The truth
la, Danny Meadow Mouse had
spoiled that beautiful night for
N^nny Meadow Mouse, lie didn’t
know he had, but he had. You see,
Nanny was worried and her worry
He Certainly Mu6t Be Dead; Nanny
Was Sure of It.
was all on account of Danny.
The newest babies were quite
safe In their snug nest, hidden
well, I won’t tell you just where It
was hidden. That was Danny’s
and Nanny's secret, so 1 guess 1
haven’t any right to tell you Just
where that snug little nest was. If
1 did they might not trust me
Anyway, those newest babies were
quite safe, because they were too
young to crawl out oven If they
should waken, which they were
not likely to do because their little
stomachs were full. Little Meadow
Mice are like other babies In that
when their stomachs are full they
sleep and grow. So Nanny didn’t
worry about the babies.
The half-grown children had
romped and played In the moonlight
until they had become so tired that
they were glad to curl up In their
beds. They were dreaming the
pleasantest of Meadow Mouse
dreams. So Nanny didn’t worry
about them. But she did worry
about Danny Meadow Mouse. Why
didn't he come home? Never since
she had known him had Danny
been gone so long. Something must
have happened to him. She was
sure of It.
Had Reddy or Cranny Fox caught
him? She hadn’t seen either of
them on the Green Meadows that
day, but one of them might have
been there long enough to cntoh
Danny without being seen by her.
Or perhaps Black l’ussy the Cal
from Farmer Brown’s had surprised
Danny. She had seen Redtail the
llawk sailing over the Green Mead
ows twice during the day and It
might be that he had dined on
Danny. It was a dreadful thought
She couldn't get rid of It. If some
thing dreadful hadn't happened,
Danny never would have stayed
away like this.
Nanny tried to be hopeful. She
tried to take a nap, for she was
very, very, very tired. Hut she
couldn't sleep. She couldn't even
keep still. She kept creeping out
to look along the private little
paths she and Danny had made
through the grass, hoping each time
to see him hurrying home along one
Sweet Mistress Moon climbed high
er In the sky, and then began to
go lower and lower, and the Black
Sluulows began once more to creep
out across the Green Meadows. Soon
Jolly, round, red Mr. Sun would
come up to chase them away alto
gether and a new day would begin.
Still no Danny. He must be dead.
Nanny was sure of It.
