I think the Sun is a flower That blooms for just one hour.
"Margot, can you please read your poem about the Sun ? "
No! you didn’t write that!”
"The Sun is like a penny, like a fire in the stove"
"You don't rembember!"
"You are lying!"
"Children! now stop! In a few days you will descover it!"
"No, it's not!"
The sun shines for only two hours once every seven years. It opens on the day that the sun is due to make its appearance once again.
"You won't see nothing!"
"Yeah, let's do it!"
Margot came from Earth to Venus five years ago. Therefore she accurately recalls the sun and the way it looked and felt as it shone on her when she was back in Ohio and now the rain seems like it has washed out all her vitality. However, this is not the case with the other children because they had never seen the sun.
They can only imagine the warmness of that sun upon their arms and legs. Margot tells the others that the sun is round like a penny and hot like a fire in the stove. The other children accuse her of lying. They bullied her and hated her for her introvert personality, for her waiting silence and for her possible future
When they were waiting for the sun to show up, the children told Margot that this wasn’t the right day and they showed their resentment of her seeming superiority by locking her in a closet.
"Let's lock her in the closet!"
When the Venus rains finally stop and the sun comes out, it sends a flaming bronze color throughout the jungle growth. The children soak up the life-giving sunshine until the rains start to fall again.
The children now know that Margot was telling the truth about the sun. Then and only then do they remember that Margot is still locked in the closet.
