Story: The locust bird or ||kerri


The locust bird or ||kerri


Lucy Lloyd |xam notebooks


The locusts (with the locust birds which accompany them) are set free by Sorcerers. Stones not to be thrown at the locusts. (L V.-21. 5708-5719 1/2). The locust bird (or ||kerri) travels about with locust 'flocks' and with sorcerers. Only sorcerers may release locusts from their hole – other people would die. The locusts and the locust birds are dangerous things or 'fighting things'.
