What do you know about swans? Building Background Swans have appeared in European folklore and mythology since ancient times, when people believed that Zeus, king of the gods, once came to earth disguised as a swan.
According to legend, a swan sings one strange and beautiful song in its lifetimeas it is dying. The modern phrase swan song, meaning a persons farewell appearance or final work, is based on this legend. Vocabulary Preview
The beautiful swan sat preening itself, hoping to extricate the mud from its feathers. Some malicious person, sitting on the outskirts of the lake, had tried to harm the swan by throwing mud at it. It was presumptuous of that person to assume the swan would not swim away quickly after the first attack.
