Mother Nature cried: "Be still! Everyone has had their say but the one whose opinion counts the most. I have not asked this pretty young thing how she feels." she turned to the bird in her lap. Which of these three eagles would you have as mate? You're the one who should do the choosing, not me, and not anyone else. Which one do you choose?"
Then the pretty eagle spoke--shyly, very shyly. "Please, Mother, I am so young, I've barely begun to explore life. I want no mate at all. At least not yet. Let me wait before I choose. Next year, if any of these eagles still thinks that he loves me, then--maybe! Maybe, I'll say yes!"
"Seems there's no reason for all your fighting!" Mother Nature cried. "She will not choose until next year, if then! She will wait until she's good & ready." At that, those three big eagles all drooped their wings, sank their heads down on their breasts, and flew away.
Mother Nature turned at last to all the other birds and said, "Well it is Valentine Day a day when you should all be "love birds". It is time for each of you to choose your own mates!" And each flew off to that sweet bird he loved best.
