The swallow in the story, 'The Happy Prince' played a crucial role in making the Prince happy. What traits does the bird profess which makes it fulfill its tasks.

Dear Student,

The swallow in the story is the agent of charity, with the help of whom the prince helps the poor in the city. The bird is kind-hearted as he helps in carrying out the noble deeds. He sacrifices his own own life to help others. Though the bird is a migratory bird and had to return back in winter, he spent his time carrying jewels to the poor in order to help them. This brings out the compassionate and benevolent nature of the swallow.
