The year was 1012 when I was walking in the woods . I was contemplating what the design of my coat of arms should be, when suddenly, I came upon a small bird, who seemed helpless. I heard its sad chirping, as if he were longing for his family. Carefully, I picked it up and placed it in my carrying satchel.
I tried looking for its family I felt loyal to the little bird, as I believed it to be my destiny to find its family. As I continued to walk on, suddenly I heard the roaring of water ahead. It was a raging river, I had no choice, but to cross.
It was treacherous Carefully, I placed one foot in front of the other, calculating every step. The water rushed past, I almost lost my footing, but I was able to recover. The little bird and I made it safely to the shore. Our trip continued.
Our Journey Continues Loud crashing noises broke the peaceful silence. The noise came closer and closer. What could it be? Oh no! A bear.
I followed my instincts. Little bird and I dashed through the woods, my heart was beating wildly as I could hear the bear running close behind. Without thinking I picked up a large rock, and quickly threw it at the lumbering bear! He suddenly stopped, turned around and began to retreat. Amazed at my own good fortune, I continued to run with the little bird, still in my satchel.
Peace at Last The sound of raging water turned into a relaxing rhythm of water, the woods melted into a meadow with a welcoming castle on the water’s bank.
It felt like home. I heard the sound of birds chirping. Peace rushed over me. I knew I could release the little bird now, and he would be safe. We overcame the raging river, and the ferocious bear. I had protected the little bird, with loyalty and strength. We had a bond that could never be broken.
My Coat of Arms I now knew what belonged on my coat of arms: Blue for loyalty & strength White for peace A Wavy line for water A Bear for protection
The castle on the hill As I approached the castle the great door opened. It seemed that the castle was beckoning to me, and so I entered. The busy servants welcomed me as their king. To this day I reside with my family, with the mighty coat of arms above the entryway. I’ll always remember the little black bird who began it all, so long ago.
