"In the Garden"

When Mr. Archibald Craven stopped to rest near a lake, he thought about the Secret Garden, where he was happy with his wife. He started to think about Misselthwaite Manor, that he should return.
One night, Mr. Craven dreamed about his dead wife and the garden. In the morning after that, he decided to return to Yorkshire, when he read a letter from Dickon's mother.
On the journey back to England, Mr. Craven thought about Colin and his first days of life. He stopped near the Sowerby's cottage, to talk to Mrs. Susan, but she wasn't there.
When Mr. Archibald Craven arrived at Misselthwaite, he talked to Mrs. Medlock. The old woman said Colin was different and strange. She told to Mr. Craven that the boy was in the gardens.
The man walked through the manor, and stood in front of the Garden's door. He heard laughter and feet running. Then, a boy passed through the door and fell into his arms. Mr. Craven was astonished: the boy in his arms was young, strong and lively. The boy in his arms was his son. They talked about the garden.
And they returned from the garden. And all the servants were surprised when they saw the scene: Colin was walking, happily and healthily.
