um..... well considering none of us know what game your playing, and all of them you get a sword we can't help much, but it sound like you're playing the original zelda, if so you should look at the zd guide
um, could you elaborate please? you're unclear and after you get the sword you can do a number of things. you can:
A) collection of the blue ring, heart containers etc. etc.
head to the first temple which is not far away.
i personally recommend A. it's going to help, trust me.
