Come along Pearl, I must tell Dimmesdale something very important
Mother, I think the sun is afraid of you!
Yes, once and this scarlet letter is his mark
Mother, have you ever met the Black Man?
"Hester Prynne remained constant in her resolve to make know to Mr. Dimmesdale, at whatever risk of present pain or ulterior consequences, the true character of the man who had crept into his intimacy."
Do you think its the Black Man and why does the minister not where the mark outside his bosom too?
Go now child, I hear footsteps approaching
""Mother," said little pearl, "the sunshine does not love you. It runs away and hides itself, because it is afraid of something on your bosom.""
"How he haunts this forest, and carries a book with him,-a big, heavy book, with iron clasps; and how this ugly Black Man offers his book an iron pen to everybody that meets him here among the trees; and they are to write they names with their own blood."
By Gavi Goldsmith and Tehila Lowe
"But now, Pearl, I hear footsteps along the path, and the noise of one putting aside the branches. I would have thee betake thyself to play, and leave me to speak with him that comes yonder."
"To Hester's eye, the Reverend Mr. Dimmesdale exhibited no symptom of positive and vivacious suffering, except that, as little Pearl had remarked, he kept his hand over his heart."
