said the shepherd, ‘he has not a tooth in his head, and the thieves don’t care for him at all; to be sure he has served us, but then he did it to earn his livelihood; tomorrow shall be his last day, depend upon it.’
At last the thieves found him out, and lifted him up in their hands.
At this the thieves were frightened, and said, ‘Softly, softly!
Meantime the thieves were frightened, and ran off a little way; but at last they plucked up their hearts, and said, ‘The little urchin is only trying to make fools of us.’
The thieves ran off as if a wolf was at their tails: and the maid, having groped about and found nothing, went away for a light.
Then he climbed up again, and tried to hit the thieves on the head with them: but they only said, ‘It must be near morning, for the wind shakes the fir-apples down.’
Then away rattled the nuts down among the boughs and one of the thieves cried, ‘Bless me, it is hailing.’
So she poured all the vinegar down; and the thieves said, ‘What a heavy dew there is!’
