A Story About a Hare

Once upon a time a beautiful woman came along a road to the source of a wild river. A hare that was hiding there decided to speak to her.

He said: “Your beauty is like a dance, your eye is like a small moon; please say to me that we will marry.”

And the woman heard that and laughed “my eye is like a small moon?

“Your wish is to marry me? Yes, sure!

“But you cannot say the three words of my name! If you can I will!”

The hare then said “I can say your name in three words” The woman said to him “You must say it to me!”

Then he said “ ‘Your husband and my wife’ I can say we are; what is your reply?”

“My reply is this”: her knife cut several times through the skin of the hare.

She swiftly made a hole and then threw his body in the water of the wild river.

(But) when she was finished still the hare continued to say from the river “This?”

The end.
