As a boy at I would watch the swallows gather in large numbers on the wires, young and old, preparing for their long journey ahead. Over the English channel, down through western France, across the Pyrenees, down eastern Spain into Morocco, and across the Sahara. Some following the west coast of Africa avoiding the Sahara, and others traveling further east and down the Nile Valley.

Their departure would sadly symbolised the end of Summer and I would look forward to their return each Spring.

You really pulled from personal experience to make something that feels so genuine and beautiful even without knowing where it came from. Hearing about your winter harbinger as a child makes it even more special :)
