An old man was living on the banks of a beautiful river. His life was quiet, but his mind was restless. A fairy felt that. She came to see him. Young and unearthly beautiful she was. He couldn’t believe she was interested in him. They fell in love and met regularly. She let him make love to her. It was divine. It lasted for two years, two wonderful years. On the eve of that year’s summer solstice she told him she had to leave him. Someone else needed her now. The man’s world collapsed. He cried bitter tears in silent despair.
