He’s not hungry because if he was he wouldn’t be sitting there doing that. Nick is playing the guitar. It’s taking place in amongst the wheat, in a wheat field. He likes the quietness and he can play as loud as he likes and no-one can complain.
He’s playing music loudly and he’s feeling crook because his mother’s not there. He’s playing music to practise. He looks lovely and romantic. Maria wishes she were there to dance the Charleston!
The weather is nice. It’s getting a bit warmer and Nick is enjoying it. He’s just there amusing himself. Nick is on his own. It could be in Australia because we grow a lot of wheat in the bush. It’s taking place near Canberra.
There are plenty of other sounds but mainly we hear the strong sounds of the guitar. “It looks like he is dancing,” says Elsie. Nick lives close by. He wouldn’t be far from the footpath or the road. He’s a young man and we think he lives on a farm nearby, at the end of the field.
After he’s finished playing guitar he’ll go to have something yummy to eat—maybe some wheat! He’ll go back to the farmyard. There’s plenty to eat. Val makes up a rhyme: “Yummy yummy, bummy bummy!”
Then, Nick has work to do on the farm.
