"Where are you rushing to?" said he Tree to the River,
"you are always in such a hurry."
"I have many stories, really important stories Tree.
I have got to get them to the sea as quickly as possible."
"And is the wind going to help you?" said the Tree.
"Sometimes," said the River, "but the wind can be friend and foe,
it is I alone am the storyteller."

(A Tale from Ireland)
