This is a favorite fable of mine. It has the right leap from one category to another that sometimes makes a fable take our breath away. I will let the presentation folder tell the fable itself. The other side of the folder identifies the five scenes in the series: 1) Marking the Gunwale to Find the Sword 2) Crossing the River 3) The Sword Dropping into the Water 4) Marking a Mark on the Gunwale 5) Jumping into the Water to Find the Sword
