Book DescriptionThis is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: Ill THE SWAN-CHILDREN OF LIR KING LIR of Erin had four young children who were cared for tenderly at first by their stepmother, the new queen; but there came a time when she grew jealous of the love their father bore them, and resolved that she would endure it no longer. Sometimes there was murder in her heart, but she could not bear the thought of that wickedness, and she resolved at last to choose another way to rid herself of them. One day she took them to drive in her chariot: ? Finola, who was eight years old, with her three younger brothers, ? Aodh, Fiacre, and little Conn, still a baby. They were beautiful children, the legend says, with skins white and soft as swans' feathers, and with large blue eyes and very sweet voices. Reaching a lake, she told them that they might bathe in the clear water; but so soon as they were in it she struck them with a fairy wand, ? for she was of the race of the Druids, who had magical power,?and she turned them into four beautiful snow-white swans. But they still had human voices, and Finola said to her, " This wicked deed of thine shall be punished, for the doom that awaits thee will surely be worse than ours." Then Finola asked, " How long shall we be in the shape of swans?" "For three hundred years," said the woman, "on smooth Lake Darvra; then three hundred years on the sea of Moyle " (this being the sea between Ireland and Scotland); " and then three hundred years at Inis Glora, in the Great Western Sea" (this was a rocky island in the Atlantic).
