Product Description

The people of the forest are amazed at the beauty and swiftness of She Who Flies Swiftly. She is like a bright jewel among the leafy trees. But one day they find her lying with a broken wing on the forest floor. Suddenly the Creator is there, holding her in his hand. Afterward the others wait for her to fly, but she no longer can. The forest people cannot understand. Wasn't she healed by the Creator? Finally they leave her and in her sorrow she begins to sing. The song becomes more and more beautiful. Her voice is joined by that of the Creator. The story helps us see that healing can come in may different ways.
