Loons in the Moonlight
Late one night a young brave was awakened by the sound of a hauntingly beautiful voice. The enchanting voice called and the brave followed the sound to the banks of the lake. As the mist rose off the surface of the water he sat by the lake and listened to the mystical voice dreaming of a beautiful lady singing the mesmerizing song. He searched for her in the moonlight until the red sky of the morning rising sun dried the dew on the grass and the melodies faded away.
Every night he awoke to her voice and followed it to the lake and searched in vain for the lady in the mist. He fell deeply in love with the soul whose mystical song touched his heart and became very depressed that he could never find the one who moved him so. He was so sad he became very sick, would not eat, could not sleep and lost the will to live. Close to death he lay by the lake still hoping to see his lady when out of the mist appeared a figure singing a magic song, although there were no words to her song it told him the Lady of the Mist had a gift for him. So he would always have her voice with him to bring joy to his heart and console him when he was sad. She had a special present for him. When the figure approached him she appeared to him as a Majestic Loon gliding across the water towards him. She took a reed from the lake and placed it into his hand. It was transformed into a reed flute with the most wonderful magical voice and then she disappeared with the mist.
The brave played the flute and as it sang out he became strong. The voice of the flute always brought joy not only to him but to everyone who heard it. The flute not only consoled him, but he consoled others with its mystic voice. At twilight in the early morning mist you can still hear the Lady of the Lake in the reed flute as it echoes's across the water like "Loons in the Moonlight".
