I would like to hear you sing

A swan is treasured by many cultures, and many nations all across the world for its beauty, uniqueness, and mysterious behavior. They are mute birds, and are only known to make a single sound when they are dying. From the moment that they hatch, they make no sound. They live their whole life being mute, and communicating through body language only. They live being mute, and the first and last time in their lives that they ever make a sound, is when they are dying. Many people called it "The Death song", or otherwise known as "The swan song".

In old China, when a swan was heard crying, the inhabitants believed that they would be cursed with bad luck or death if they listened to the sound of the dying swan.
