|I still see it from the perspective of the Three Graces. They see the little boy from their lonely spot in the middle of the lake. Each of them sees the son she'll never have, the husband who'll never love her, and they regret the wrongful act that caused the spell to be cast on them, the spell that could never be broken.
Frozen for eternity, all they can do is watch the child and long for what they cannot have.
And the little boy, with all the charming wisdom of a little one, he senses their loneliness and his heart hurts for what he doesn't know. But fickle as little children often are, he fast forgets and asks his dad:
Daddy, can I catch a goose? Please, Daddy, please?
The frightened geese turn and rush past the Three Graces, splashing them from head to toe. Just as they always did. Just as they always will do.
