Love and Sorrow of a Swallow



Here the swallow's the other half (wife) is injured and the condition is fatal. She was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road.



He brought her food and attended to her with love and compassion.



He brought her food again but was shocked to find her dead.
He tried to move her....a rarely-seen effort for swallows!



Aware that his sweetheart is dead and will never be with him again, sadness filled his eyes and sorrow felt in his spirit.



He stood beside her as his heart weeps for his only love .
Finally aware that she would never return to him, he stood beside her body with untold pain and despair.

My sister and her husband are ornithologists, and both said that the love expressed here is of a more physical variety -- he's copulating with her body, which is apparently not unheard of in swallows.

I agree that the ornithologist's response is most likely true, but the images when viewed by ordinary people will bring the poet to mind not the scientist
