All the last little bits and pieces
are attached to the bigger piece.
The tale can be told !
I read this tale in the novel
(the book is set in Elizabethan England and the tale
was told by one of the main characters in the book)
"Near a village lives, hidden in the woods, a wonderful mystrerious bird.
All those who have ever seen a glimpse of it, tell their own wonderful story.
A traveler hears all the wonderful stories and is desperate to find this
miraculous bird. He then roams through the woods, without finding it, untill
in the end he does catch a glimpse of its beauty. He grabs his bow and
shoots the bird. Then, where it fell down, he only finds a small gray black
little bird ..... At long last, he puts the dead bird in his bag and returns to
the village. He tells the villagers that he saw the bird in the end ... and that
it was just as wonderful as they all had told him. He tells them to keep
safe this wonderful miraculous bird and leaves the village, to never return."
