“Which season is your favourite,ada?” Eldarion asks me.
I ponder the question for a moment. Spring is the fairest of the seasons, when new buds burst with life. Fair too, is summer with its long days, and abundant richness of fruit and flowers. Autumn has its charms with golden leaves, and a fresh nip to the air. Even winter, so harsh in the North, has a beauty of its own when the bare branches sparkle with frost.
“Summer,” I tell my son, smiling at him. ”For my heart’s desire was granted when I married your mother on Midsummer day.”
