Once upon a time there was a beautiful swan.

She had a lovely home on a private lake in a big city.
But her partner had recently vanished.
She was sad.
Her neighbors cared for her, but kept their distance.
She wasn't like them.
Every day, she'd look for her partner.
She looked through the high bushes.
And she looked on the beach.
But all she found were traces of the love she lost.
Each night as the sun set, her tears filled the lake.
