Friday, June 8, The Gratitude of Crane.
Summer Miyuki Yamasaki Once upon a time, an old man and his wife lived in a little house. One day, the old man went out as usual to collect some fire wood. Suddenly, he heard scream of a crane. The old man followed the sound and found a crane. The crane's leg was caught in a hunter's trap. The old man said, "Oh, you poor beggar! His wife said, "Oh you did a good job," and she smiled.
When they are talking, they heard something. Knock Knock. The old man went to the door and opened it.
Email Us. The Fool with the Sheep. The Galah, and Oolah the lizard. The Liver. The Snake and the Princess. The Clever Peasant. Never stay up when the Sun goes down, But sleep in your own home bed, And if you've been good, as a parrot should, You will dream that your tail is red.
Then he saw a beautiful young woman standing. The lady said "I lost my way. Could you help me? It's a snowstorm. You must be freezing," the old man said.
I lost my family and house," the lady answered. The old man took pity on the lady and said, that "if you want, you can stay here forever. I won't forget your kindness. They looked very happy. One night, the lady said, " I have something to do in that room, so please sleep ahead of me. Sleep well. I'll also sleep soon. But please make a promise. While I'm working in that room, don't open the door. It was like the sounds of a loom. When the couple awoke, they found the lady was not in her bed.

Tuesday, June 19, Return for Kindness of the Crane. One day the old man went to the mountain to gather some firewood. After a while he heard the terrible crying of a bird, and he found a crane. The crane was caught in a trap. He set it free quickly. It circled above him while crying, and it flew far away.
A few days later, there was the sound of knocking in the night. When the man opened the door, a beautiful woman with white clothes was standing. She said, "I lost my way.
May I stay in your home tonight? The next morning she asked the old man to buy some white yarn, because she wanted to repay him for the stay.
After he bought it she said, "Don't open this room while I am weaving. She wove without rest for three days.
She opened the door having beautiful cloth, and she asked the old man to sell it. He went out to sell it. Many people gathered in order to look at it, and they wanted to buy it.
Of course, he could sell it at a high price. He could get a great deal of money, and he went back home.
He thanked her for weaving the beautiful cloth. She proposed to weave some more, and she reminded the old couple not to open the door while she was weaving. And she began to weave cloth again. She wove cloth many times. Whenever the old man went to sell it, he could sell it at a high price.
