The Widow And Her Little Maidens
A Widow who was fond of cleaning had two little maidens to wait on
her. She was in the habit of waking them early in the morning, at
cockcrow. The maidens, aggravated by such excessive labor, resolved
to kill the cock who roused their mistress so early. When they had
done this, they found that they had only prepared for themselves greater
troubles, for their mistress, no longer hearing the hour from the
cock, woke them up to their work in the middle of the night.
