the traveling musicians
by the brothers grimm
there were once a group of animals traveling to the city to play music. they had to cross a forest on their way and, as it was late, they had to spend the night there. they saw a house occupied by robbers and decided to drive them away by frightening them. this worked out well and the robbers ran into the forest. then the animals ate a good meal and soon fell asleep.
around midnight the robbers saw that the lights were out and the boldest of them went to see what was going on. everything was still when he marched into the kitchen. he found a match and thought the glittering fiery eyes of the cat were live coals, and held the match to them to light it. the cat, not understanding this, sprang at his face, and spat and scratched at him. frightened, he ran to the back door; but there the dog jumped up and bit him in the leg; and as he was crossing over the yard the donkey kicked him; and the chicken, who had been awakened by the noise, crowed with all his might.
then the robber ran back to his comrades, and told the captain how a horrid witch had got into the house. she had spat at him and scratched his face with her long bony fingers. then a man with a knife in his hand had hidden himself behind the door, and stabbed him in the leg. [meanwhile], a black monster stood in the yard and struck him with a club, and the devil had sat upon the top of the house and cried out, “throw the rascal up here! ”
after this the robbers never dared to go back to the house; but the musicians were so with their quarters that they took up their abode there.
