Short story: Man with wings (scifi short story)who flew over a farm and was shot down by the farmer

I read this a long time ago as a child. It was in a collection of short stories, maybe some kind of scifi anthology. 

It was about a man with wings who flew over a farm and was shot down by the farmer, mistaking him for some bird, I think. His daughter nursed the man back to health, they ended up getting married but he had to cut off his wings. Some time in the future, his wings begin to grow back and he decides to fly but his wings are not strong enough to support him. He ends up falling into a lake (or some body of water) and the story ends.

Does anyone know the author or title or both? Thanks!
