The painter has brought before us, in this picture, two children, who, while picking strawberries in the woods have lost their way. Tired and frightened, they have seated themselves under a tree to rest. The older sister is soothing and comforting her little brother, and tries to wipe his fast falling tears. A few streaks of light here and there, show that the little wanderers are not far from the edge of the wood, and will soon come upon the right path again.
