Passage (Five Questions)
One November afternoon, a child came to Rhayader’s light house studio. She was about twelve, slender, dirty, nervous and timid. In her arms she tarried something. She was desperately afraid of the ugly man she had come to see, but she had heard somewhere that this man would heal injured things. The man’s voice was deep and kind when he spoke to her. What is it, child? She stepped forward timidly, and in her arms was a large white bird which was quite still. There were stains of blood on its whiteness. The girl placed it in his arms. I found it, Sir. It’s hurt. Is it still alive? ‘ ‘ Yes. Yes, I think so?’ Rhayader went inside with the bird in his arms. He placed it upon a table. The girl flowered. The bird fluttered. Rhayader spread one its large white wings. ‘Child where did you find it?’ In the wash, Sir. Hunters had been there? Is a snow goose from Canada. But how did it get here?’ The girl’s eyes were fixed on the injured bird. She said ‘Can you heal it, Sir?’ “Yes” and Rhayader. “We will try. You can help me.
