Fly Like Arthur the Hawk!


According to legend, the young (soon to be King) Arthur is turned into a hawk by the Magician Merlin. Merlin is teaching the young Arthur about boundaries.
From the earth, Merlin shouts to Arthur, "What do you see?" Arthur shouts back, "I see rivers and trees."
"No," an irritated Merlin responds and repeats his question. "What do you see?" "I see villages and..."
"Come down," orders Merlin. Arthur, the hawk, returns to earth and becomes Arthur, the young boy. Merlin tells him, "Someday you will know what you saw."
Arthur eventually realized that he had seen a world without boundaries, with limitless possibilities.
Creative children ages 5 - 12 are encouraged to let imaginations fly on all things Camelot.
Draw an original piece of art or write an original piece of poetry about Camelot, King Arthur's court, Knights of the Round Table, etc for the chance to "fly" like Arthur the Hawk!  Contest is open until September 14, 2011.
See the fun last year's Fly Like Peter Pan winners had "flying" over Stratford!
