An Unhappy Parade In The Forest


While visiting the Beautiful Lily in the Land of Spirit, the Youth-Prince grew impatient in his efforts to establish his relationship with Lily.  Not listening to her advice or cautions, he threw himself upon her.  His instant demise was the result.  

There was nothing that Lily could do.  In the evening hours the Old Man with the Lamp came onto the unhappy scene.  The Old Lady’s basket magically expanded and the Youth-Prince was placed within it.  A precession formed through the dark woods, led by the Green Snake.  The Prince was in the basket, now enlarged to hold him.  The basket floated behind the Old Lady who was holding her wounded hand up to the light, hoping for some relief. Lily wondered, how would the Old Man with the Lamp lead them to a solution to this unexpected situation.  Lily had already seen a happy outcome but she despaired in her inability to see what the Old Man with the Lamp could do to reach that hoped-for future.

All fairy tales have a crises point.  Several had already occurred prior to this calamity. How could a dead prince bring happiness to Lily?  How could the uniting of the physical world with the spirit world be accomplished?
