Love Without Hope
Love without hope, as when the young bird-catcher
Swept off his tall hat to the Squire’s own daughter,
So let the imprisoned larks escape and fly
Singing about her head, as she rode by.
(Robert Graves 1895-1985)
After The Firebird
What happens after the firebird returns the golden apple ?
The dragon-bird-fire-bird leaves behind a feather so that he can be called upon
The feather breaks in half – SNAP
The firebird grows weak and dies
The children must gather up the golden apples and feed them to the firebird
The dragon-bird-fire-bird rises up shrieking and flies away.
– from a morning’s storytelling in Deers Leap Wood
