the sweet, fresh air『#74_オズの魔法使い』



The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

At first the little creatures, many though they were, could hardly stir the heavily loaded truck; but the Woodman and the Scarecrow both pushed from behind, and they got along better.

Soon they rolled the Lion out of the poppy bed to the green fields, where he could breathe the sweet, fresh air again, instead of the poisonous scent of the flowers.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Dorothy came to meet them and thanked the little mice warmly for saving her companion from death.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


She had grown so fond of the big Lion she was glad he had been rescued.

Then the mice were unharnessed from the truck and scampered away through the grass to their homes.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


The Queen of the Mice was the last to leave.

"If ever you need us again," she said, "come out into the field and call, and we shall hear you and come to your assistance. Good-bye!"

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"Good-bye!" they all answered, and away the Queen ran, while Dorothy held Toto tightly lest he should run after her and frighten her.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


After this they sat down beside the Lion until he should awaken; and the Scarecrow brought Dorothy some fruit from a tree near by, which she ate for her dinner.
