The Worry Imps and Other Ukrainian Folk Tales Retold in English   The Fox and the Crane   Once upon a time Mister Fox and Miss Crane were friends. They would always pass the time of day when they met by the lake or in the field. One day Mister Fox asked Miss Crane to come to his house for lunch.   "Please come, Miss Crane," he said. "I will prepare a delicious meal."   Miss Crane accepted the kind invitation and went to visit Mister Fox. Mister Fox had made an excellent kasha, which he brought to the table on a platter.   Miss Crane bent over the platter but, with her long beak, she was unable to get one bit of kasha. She bent her head this way and that, but could not pick up anything at all.   Mister Fox licked away until the kasha was all gone and, when the platter was clean, he said, "It was good of you to come and visit me. I hope we can do this again very soon."   "Thank you for everything, Mister Fox," said Miss Crane. "Tomorrow you must come and visit me for lunch."   "Thank you, Miss Crane," said Mister Fox. "I will be there."   Next day Mister Fox arrived at her home to find a delicious smell of cooking in the air. "What a lovely aroma that is," he said. "We are indeed going to have a fine meal."   When Miss Crane served the food she put it in a long thin pot with a narrow neck. "Help yourself, Mister Fox. Do not be shy," she said.   Mister Fox tried to put his paw into the pot, but it would not go in far enough. He tried to put his long nose in, but all he could do was peer into the pot and sniff the food. Miss Crane put her long beak down into the pot and had the meal all eaten up in no time at all.   When the food was all gone, Miss Crane said, "It was good of you to come and visit me. I hope we can do this again very soon."   Mister Fox was so embarrassed and angry that he left without saying a word.   From that day to this, Foxes and Cranes have not been the best of friends.
