" - Sigh cow across the river . A dog barked , and forty lunar hare ran across the track. Fog over the river rose , and sad white horse drowned in it up to his chest , and now it seemed - a large white duck is swimming in the fog , and snorting and puts in his head. Hedgehog sitting on a hill under a pine tree and looked at the moonlit valley flooded fog. It was beautiful so that he occasionally twitching : Do not dream about it all ? And the mosquitoes do not get tired to play their violins , lunar hare danced, and the dog howled . " I'll tell you - do not believe it ! " - Thought the Hedgehog , and began to look even more closely to the last blade of grass to remember all the beauty . " That's star fell, - he said - and the grass is bent to the left, and from the top of the Christmas tree was left alone , and now she swims next to a horse ...
