Eleven Swans

11gulbji

The Wild Swansย is a literary fairy tale by Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen about a princess who rescues her eleven brothers from a spell cast by an evil queen. She has to knit eleven shirts, made from stinging nettles, to save her brothers, and she must also take a vow of silence until the job is done. Nearly two centuries old fairy tale crossed my mind when eleven swans crossed the seaside.
