Light through the Windowpane

[Of Special Interest to Children]

There are many lovely things to tell you about a windowpane. One is that it lets in the light. The sun shines upon the walls of our houses, but only through the windowpane can the dancing sunbeams find entrance into a room and drive away the shadows. Another lovely thing is that while the glass lets in the sunshine, it at the same time excludes the cold and also the noises of the street.

The most satisfactory windowpane is that one which, because it is clean and unblemished, is hardly noticed at all, but one is aware only of a flood of warm sunlight. Of course, the windowpane cannot of itself dispel darkness or warm a room; only the light and sunshine can do this. The windowpane, however, has the very important part of admitting that which can light up the dark places and bring warmth and comfort to those within the home.
