Sugli uccelli neri e bianchi
by Marina Tolstobrava – 7 min – Russia
All the birds sing perfectly. But all of them are equally white and nobody can distinguish them. It isnít pleasant to some of them, and they decide that the Rook, the Daw and the Raven will be the best singers. And the Owl whom didnít call is grieved.
To console the Owl, the Great Patron of the Birds allocates her with a talent to paint birds. But her enemies donít hurry in her painting workshop. Thirst of revenge overcomes the Owl. And when at last they were, she made them black. And she is punished.
