All Summer in a Day

Storyboard Text

  • "The children pressed to each other like so many roses, so many weeds, intermixed, peering out for a look at the hidden sun."(1)
  • "But they were running and turning their faces up to the sky and feeling the sun on their cheeks like a warm iron; they were taking off their jackets and letting the sun burn their arms."(2)
  • "The children lay out, laughing, on the jungle mattress, and heard it sigh and squeak under them resilient and alive."(3)
  • "In the center of it, cupped and huge, was a single rain drop. She began to cry, lookin at it"(3)
  • "They glanced out at the world that was raining now and raining and raining steadily. They could not meet each other's glances. Their faces were solemn and pale."(4)
  • "Behind the closet door was only silence. They unlocked the door, even more slowly, and let Margot out."(4)
