A Thousand Cranes

Rating: 3.7
I went to Japan and met a Samurai
Who lived in the mountains which were very high.
He was a master of the art of origami.
He made a thousand paper cranes just for me. *

* In Japanese tradition the person who folds 1,000 origami
cranes is granted a wish. These are often given at weddings
and to the gravely ill. The crane is a symbol of peace and
hope. For a further explanation, see “Cranes for Peace”.

Hi Ben, I like the paper cranes and what they represent, hope I suppose. My son loves origami. It is challenging and yet also satisfying. Hope your wish comes true :)
