Storyboard Text

  • Doodle was born when I was seven andwas, from the start, a disappointment. Everybody thought he was going to die.
  •  One time I showed him his casket, telling him how we all believed he would die.
  • He clung to me, crying, "Don't leave me, Brother! Don't leave me!"
  • The Old woman Swamp
  • I'm going to teach you to walk, Doodle, so I won't have to haul you around all the time.
  •  How many miles had it traveled to die like this, in our yard, beneath the bleeding tree?
  • We started home, trying to beat the storm. The faster I walked, the faster he walked, so I began to run.
  • Brother, Brother, don't leave me! Don't leave me!
  • "Doodle!" I screamed above the pounding stormand threw my body to the earth above his. For a long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying,sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis.
