Sunrise






Category: TALES ACCOUNTING FOR THE ORIGIN OF PHENOMENA.

Source: Aino Folktales

When the sun rises at the head of the world [i.e in the east], a
devil tries to swallow it. But some one thrusts two or three crows or
foxes into the devil's mouth. Meanwhile the sun mounts on high. The
creatures, than which there are none more numerous in this world, are
the crows and the foxes. That is why things are thus. In return for this
service of theirs, the crows and foxes share in all man's eatables. It
is because of the above fact.--(Translated literally. Told by Penri,
13th July, 1886.)
