The Flooded Forest

'Listen, to go outside this wall is quite dangerous, for the surrounding woods are full of wild animals. I'll never understand how you got here without being eaten alive. But if you wait for the day when there's a storm at sea, you will see the water rise to the top of the wall and moor to those spires up there on the roof. If you are patient, you will be able to sail away on one of those ships.'
- Italo Calvino, Italian Folktales
