FINNISH TALE: I REALLY DIDN'T WANT IT

IN THE SPRING THE FOX WAITED FOR THE TAIL OF THE COLT TO FALL OFF,
THE COLT WAS LAYING ON THE SAND AND THE TAIL WAS STRONG AT ITS
BASE AND FINE IN ITS TIP, AS IT IS WITH A COLT IN THE SPRING.
ALL DAY ONG THE FOX FOLLOWED THE COLT AND LAYED DOWN HIS PAWS
AND WAITED TILL THE TALE WOULD FALL OFF. THE FOX WAS VERY HUNGRY
AND THE OTHER FOXES WERE TEASING HIM: "YOU WILL HARDLY GET IT."
FINALLY IN THE EVENING, THE COLT LEFT FOR HOME AND TOOK HIS TAIL
WITH HIM. THE OTHER FOXES HECKLED THE FOX. "YOU DIDN'T GET IT."
THE FOX SAID, "I REALLY, DIDN'T WANT IT AFTER ALL."
