Scarecrow stands alone in a field, straight and tall, never moving, never speaking. No creatures came near — neither deer nor mouse nor bird nor any other creature. Through the fall and winter, he stands alone in the field. In the spring, a tiny crow falls at his feet. Scarecrow breaks the pole in his back and leans over to pick up the baby crow. He nestles it close to his heart, and there it stays until it can fly on its own. Then Scarecrow is alone again, all through the fall and winter. When spring arrives, he still stands alone, but there is one more surprise in store for the patient, kind Scarecrow.
