The legend of the Blue Willow:

Once in ancient China, there lived a rich Mandarin man whose beautiful daughter was betrothed to a wealthy old merchant. Her affections, however, lay elsewhere – on her father's poor but handsome secretary. When their secret meetings were discovered the girl was imprisoned in her father's pagoda. From there she concealed messages in coconut shells and floated them downstream to her lover.

The Mandarin man, sensing something was going on, hastened the wedding arrangements, but the secretary and daughter promptly eloped.

In a small boat, right in the middle of the sea, the Mandarin man caught them. In his parental wrath he decided to beat them to death when divine intervention caused them to turn into a pair of turtle doves.

The Mandarin man, his plans foiled, returned to his pagoda, whilst the turtle doves flew freely above. 

This Chinese fable is depicted in the pattern of Churchill Blue Willow and offers a charming recount of this thrilling tale.
