[00:00.93]Passage 4. A Little Girl
[00:05.09]Sitting on a grassy grave, beneath one of the windows of the church, was a little girl.
[00:13.73]With her head bent back she was gazing up at the sky and singing,
[00:18.87]while one of her little hands was pointing to a tiny cloud
[00:23.58]that hovered like a golden feather above her head.
[00:28.06]The sun, which had suddenly become very bright, shining on her glossy hair,
[00:34.51]gave it a metallic luster, and it was difficult to say what was the color, dark bronze or black.
[00:42.76]So completely absorbed was she in watching the cloud to which her strange song or incantation seemed addressed,
[00:51.90]that she did not observe me when I rose and went towards her.
[00:56.50]Over her head, high up in the blue,
[01:00.00]a lark that was soaring towards the same gauzy cloud was singing, as if in rivalry.
[01:06.59]As I slowly approached the child,
[01:09.55]I could see by her forehead, which in the sunshine seemed like a globe of pearl,
[01:15.78]and especially by her complexion, that she uncommonly lovely.
[01:21.69]Her eyes, which at one moment seemed blue-gray, at another violet,
[01:26.83]were shaded by long black lashes, curving backward in a most peculiar way,
[01:32.75]and these matched in hue her eyebrows,
[01:36.03]and the tresses that were tossed about her tender throat were quivering in the sunlight.
[01:41.93]All this I did not take in at once;
[01:44.78]for at first I could see nothing but those quivering, glittering, changeful eyes turned up into my face.
[01:52.76]Gradually the other features, especially the sensitive full-lipped mouth,
[01:58.56]grew upon me as I stood silently gazing.
[02:01.95]Here seemed to me a more perfect beauty than had ever come to me in my loveliest dreams of beauty.
[02:09.29]Yet it was not her beauty so much as the look she gave me that fascinated me, melted me.
