The Ugly Duckling
Today is June Bank Holiday in Ireland. I have been walking down St. Stephen's Green Park, enjoying the sunny day. In one of the pond, there were a pair of swans with their cygnets. It reminded me of the tale written by Hans Christian Andersen and also the Disney classic, winner of an Oscar in 1939: The Ugly Duckling.
I can't understand the adjective 'ugly' for them, because I think young swans are absolutely adorable. I felt like taking one as a pet! :)
