I'll fly up on to a branch, and you take shelter in the hollow. We'll [Pg 47] get through the night somehow. So the cock made his way on to a branch, tucked in his toes, and went to sleep, while the dog made himself a bed in the hollow of the tree.

I expect he's lost his way and can't get out again! And he began to look for the cock, and after a bit he saw him sitting upon the branch of the tree. How can I get him to come down from there? I've never seen such a fine one all my days! What lovely feathers, just as if they were covered with gold! And your tail! And what a sweet voice you've got! I [Pg 51] could listen to it all day and all night. Do fly down a little closer and let's get to know each other a little better.

Here's a little present for you from King Frost. And he brought her a trunk full of all sorts of things, silver and gold, and bright-coloured stones. Go into the forest and bring her back. The old man's bringing his daughter home. She's blooming like the poppy-bloom, and she's got a fine present, and a new coat with a beaver collar!

So the old man took her daughter, left her in the forest, and then drove off home. And there the girl sat, with her teeth chattering with the cold, [Pg 64] when lo and behold! Go away to where you came from! You can see I'm frozen! Be quick and give me the presents, and [Pg 65] then get away to your home.
