as they themselves could love any goose. The gander's name was Eastern Redbud. The first year of the flock the three ladies Paper Mulberry, Sassafras, and Mockernut Hickory were his. Paper Mulberry was his closest.
"What of you, Sassafras?" Redbud asked. "I would give up all food and water and all the comfort of the grass and ground to have you back," Sassafras replied. "What of you, Mulberry?" Redbud asked. "I would give up my life so that you could return to your flock," Mulberry replied. "Truly you love me most of all, Mulberry. For life is indeed what is most precious among all geese. You two ladies have offered what you thought to be the most wonderful sacrifice. Look to Mulberry for council for she is both wise and brave," Redbud said.
In this way was Mulberry's wisdom made known throughout the flock and neighboring flocks by the songs of birds.
my name is Emily
I have twenty-eight geese. I hatch a bunch of goslings because I want a lot of people to have geese. I do not see them everywhere but I want to! The goslings are the sweetest baby birds I know! The adult males are proud and can be cranky but have their sweet moments while the females are shy and sweet all at the same time.
