Part4 Last DayCharlotte and Wilbur were alone.Wilbur lay resting after the excitement and strain of the ceremony.His medal still hung from his neck; by looking out of the corner of his eye he could see it."Charlotte," said Wilbur after a while,"why are you so quiet?""I like to sit still," she said."I've always been rather quiet.""Yes, but you seem specially so today.Do you feel all right?""A little tired, perhaps.But I feel peaceful.Your success in the ring this morning was to a small degree, my success.Your future is assured.You will live, secure and safe, Wilbur.Nothing can harm you now.These autumn days will shorten and grow cold.The leaves will shake loose from the trees and fall.Christmas will come, then the snows of winter.You will live to enjoy the beauty of the frozen world,for you mean a great deal to Zuckerman and he will not harm you, ever.Winter will pass, the days will lengthen, the ice will melt in the pasture pond.The song sparrow will return and sing, the frogs will awake, the warm wind will blow again.All these sights and sounds and smells will be yours to enjoy,Wilbur--this lovely world, these precious days..."Charlotte stopped.A moment later a tear came to Wilbur's eye.
