Yellacat Ranch Under a Western Sky

Slavic Lore

S

In a Sclavonian legend, a youth was reposing in a forest. The wind sighed through the trees, filling him with a tender melancholy which could find no expression in words. Presently there fluttered through the branches a snowy swan, which alighted on his breast. The youth clasped the beautiful bird to his heart, and resisted all its struggles to escape. Then the swan changed into a beautiful girl, who forthwith accompanied him to church, where they were united. (Sabine Baring-Gould, Curious Myths of the Middle Ages (1866-1868))
