The wind blew as ’twad blawn its last;
The rattling showers rose on the blast; The speedy gleams the darkness swallow’d; Loud, deep, and lang, the thunder bellow’d: That night, a child might understand, The Deil had business on his hand. Robert Burns “Windy Witch was gone” an illustration from the short story “Windy Witch” written by Helen Broadbent, included in the book “Blackie’s Children’s Annual 1912” Great Grandmother Goose by Helen Cooper, illustrated by Krystyna Turska, Hamish Hamilton, London 1978 Southwind, Johann Sadeler (I), after Maerten de Vos, 1560 – 1600

A heartwarming family story that will resonate for everyone who’s experienced the Covid-19 quarantine — or other kinds of hardship and loss.
No one knew where the strange storm came from, or why it lasted so long. The family at the center of this timely story has to hunker down together, with no going outside – and that’s hard when there’s absolutely nothing to do, and everyone’s getting on everyone else’s nerves.
This classic in the making will lift hearts with its optimistic vision of a family figuring out how to love and support one another — even when their everyday world is shrunk beyond recognition.
