Young girl named lily


By Matheesha FernandoPublished 5 months ago 3 min read

Once upon a time, in the heart of a dense forest, there lived a young girl named Lily in a small town. She was an orphan who had to fend for herself despite her young age. Every day, she would get up early and go into the forest to collect food and water. She had no family or friends, and she was frequently lonely and depressed.

One day, as she was walking through the forest, she heard a beautiful melody. It was the most enchanting music she had ever heard, and she could not resist the urge to follow it. She walked deeper into the forest until she came across a small cottage. The music was coming from inside the cottage, and she could see smoke coming from the chimney.

Lily approached the cottage with caution and peered through the window. Inside, she noticed an elderly woman sitting by the fire and playing the harp. The woman noticed Lily and smiled, inviting her inside. Lily paused for a moment, but her attention was drawn to the woman's warm eyes and welcoming smile. She entered the cottage and was greeted warmly by the elderly lady.

The old woman's name was Rosalind, and she was a wise and gentle woman who had lived in the forest for many years. She was a skilled musician and often played her harp to soothe the souls of those who were lost or in need of comfort. Rosalind saw the sadness in Lily's eyes and offered to take her under her wing. She promised to teach Lily everything she knew about music and the ways of the forest.

Lily was ecstatic at the prospect of having a teacher as well as a friend. Rosalind's offer was eagerly accepted, and she began to study the harp. She learned to play beautiful melodies that seemed to lift her spirits and bring joy to her heart. She also learned about the forest and the creatures that lived there.

As the weeks went by, Lily grew stronger and more confident. She no longer felt alone or scared. She had found a home and a family in Rosalind and the forest creatures. She played her harp every day and often went on long walks through the forest, accompanied by her animal friends.

Rosalind and Lily returned to the deer and bandaged its wounds. They stayed with the deer all night, playing soothing music and soothing it. The deer was strong enough to stand by the morning, and it ran off into the forest, thanking Lily and Rosalind for their kindness.

Lily's consideration and music immediately spread all through the woodland, and numerous animals looked for her help and solace. Lily acquired the moniker "backwoods performer," and she went through her days playing her harp and helping those out of luck.

Years passed, and Lily became old. She had turned into a darling figure in the timberland, and numerous animals came to offer their appreciation when she died. Rosalind kept on playing her harp, passing on the information and benevolence that Lily had instructed her.

Thus, the tradition of Lily the timberland artist lived on, and her music kept on alleviating the spirits of the people who were lost or needing solace. Her thoughtfulness and sympathy had contacted the hearts of many, and her memory would continuously live on in the hearts and brains of the people who had known her.

The story of Lily reminds us of the power of kindness, compassion, and the joy that can be found in music. It inspires us to be kind to others and to find ways to spread joy and comfort to those who need it.

    Very good Matheesha, but how did the deer get wounded? Maybe I missed something?
