Such a beautiful story, thank you for posting the text of this, I have become emotional once again remembering some of the finer details of this story. This was heartbreaking to read as a child, for having grown up with Disney and many childrens' shows, there is always the belief of a typical happy ending, but that is not always possible. This is something that I came to understand as I grew up, but I appreciate this story all the more.

Oscar Wilde was a master storyteller as well as a master wit, so everyone should read his short stories and any of his works, because their lives will be so enriched! :)
