The Happy Prince Featured Welcome Swallow Image

The Happy Prince

The Happy Prince - by Oscar Wilde. In a town where a lot of poor people are suffering, a lonely swallow meets the statue of the late "Happy Prince", who had lived in a palace where sorrow isn't allowed to enter. Viewing people suffering in poverty from high above, Prince asks the swallow to take the ruby from his hilt, the sapphires from his eyes, and the golden leaf covering his body to give to the poor

Swallows Cave, Nahant, 1874. Creator: John Douglas Woodward

Swallows Cave, Nahant, 1874. Tourists at the Nahant peninsula, near Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The Swallows a long, gloomy cavern, overhung by a dome of irregular strata, heaved together in strange, shelving layers. The cave is eight feet high and seventy long, and derives its name from its having long been occupied by colonies of swallows, which built their nests in its sombre crevices, and flew in and out in fluttering multitudes. But the invasion of their retreat by curiosity-seekers has expelled them thence. The cave may be entered for some distance by a row-boat; and here is a favorite cool haunt in the hot summer days, when the beaches are insufferable'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]
