SCENE: The same square at dusk. Above the arch, the glimpse of sky glows peacock-blue; with the Evening Star.
The archway is now filled in with a hanging composed of various stuffs and garments, -- deep green, blue and olive, fastened together to make a curtain. At the left-hand edge of this home-made curtain, a crack of light gleams upon a string of children, one behind another who are peering in. -- The only other light comes from the faintly glimmering shrine, in the corner-wall, which makes a tiny lunette of dim color.
Down to the right, by THE POTTER'S bench, THE WOLF watches, motionless and miserable.
BIMBA, giving place to another child for a moment at the peep-hole, turns about dancingly, singing.
STAR, Star! Star, Star! . . . . .
