Lily in the church


Up on the hill there was a church. Down was a valley. Lily went up the hill to pray. She carried a big flower and a small candle with her. It was dark inside the church. Light came when she lighted the candle. She saw a fat hen. It had thin chickens. She prayed to god for love among people. She prayed no one should hate each other. There was dirt around the church. She cleaned the surroundings. She was praised by the priest. His voice was soft but not harsh. She felt happy. She forgot all sadness. Lily went home.
