Illustrations by Vinko Selan Gliha. The House of the Hedgehog R ough English translation. Translated by Klara Amon, revised by Marko. Often can be seen hunting, it is his business, he attacks with three hundred spines. The wolf and the bear, and even the sheep, know the hedgehog, the glorious hunter.
The day walks in front of him, the terror is spreading, glory travels on his trail. Honey-word letter, as the bear was telling,. Short addressing, the letters like eggs:. In the letter is written:.
I am writing you this from the karst with a goose feather pen. What a wonderful printout! Come for lunch to my cottage, hurry up, do not spare your feet. I will wait for you, hurry up running. Kindly hugs you with the honey face. Guskino krilo lepeza tvoja, a jastuk meki patkica koja. The sun circle ascended to the zenith. In front of the house, at the stone wall.
Should cock feather decorate your home,. Goose wing should be your fan brush. Live forever in peace and happiness,. And after all this. I am here for lunch with my whole belly. The magical and delicious lunch started,. Hedghog and fox were shining of fat. Dish after dish,. For the health of the fox, and his home,. The four hours lunch tensed the bellies like a war drum. The night is here, above the whole forest,.
A butterfly passes from time to time. And the night wind is counting the leaves. The forest is silent, no more noise. The eyes of wildcats shine. The vagabond glowworm lights the lantern. With magical splendor the path enlights. An owl is howling her war call:.
It was very good, without joking, dear fox, thank you so much. So the fox sweetly talks. But the hedgehog excuses, and says:. But the hedgehog is stubborn, and he insists on going home. Rustling and whirring the hedgehog is measuring the way the moon through the branches enlightens his path. The hedgehog is going, murmuring, above him the stars are shining:. Since the hedgehog wishes his home so desperately, it must be a rich house. It has feathers on the floor, maybe,. That house, I believe glitters with abundance.
I will go secretly, I want to see it. Dok juri tako uz grobni muk, pred njom na stazi, stvori se vuk. The fox hurries up, a noiseless shadow,. While is running with cemetery silence,. I will go with you, because I love fun,.
I want to see the hedgehog — the fool! While they were running faster than the arrow,. I swear on my nose, I would give mine for a rotten pear.
For a handful of honey I would give it to anyone, says the voracious bear. Sve troje jure k'o divlja rijeka, odjednom- evo- kaljuga neka. All the three of them were running like a wild river, suddenly there is a mud. The boar baths in it,. Born- nest! Under the beech log a hole, which was dark and deaf, and mattress was made of dry leaves. Blessed and in a happy mood repeats endlessly:. I will always remain loyal to you,. I never would exchange you for anything.
Koliba tvoja prava je baba, krov ti je truo, prostirka slaba. Your cottage is real old lady,. Such cottage, little braggart, we all could give it for a good lunch. Three of them were telling this angrily, while the wise fox beside them was silent.
Prost je i skroman, ali je moj, tu sam slobodan i gazda svoj. I am hardworking, I hunt and I live peacefully under my roof. It is only a villain, gone with the devil, who would give his birth place for a lunch.
Because of this, you crazy three, you do not have your own house. The fox listens to this, and gave a healthy judgment:. She said so and ran away towards a hill,. Is there anything more, how is the end? The story teaches it, particularly, know it. The butcher wolf, poor his mother,. And the boar would fell down like a pear,. Throughout the woods nowadays, without path and way,. He is expert and master in his work, he works and protects his birth home. Honey-word letter, as the bear was telling, arrived in the bag of the postman rabbit.
Kindly hugs you with the honey face and sends you greetings fox Mica. Should cock feather decorate your home, should chicken sit in your pot! Goose wing should be your fan brush and a duck a soft pillow. Live forever in peace and happiness, never hear the dog barking. And after all this I am here for lunch with my whole belly.
The magical and delicious lunch started, Hedghog and fox were shining of fat. A butterfly passes from time to time And the night wind is counting the leaves The forest is silent, no more noise. The vagabond glowworm lights the lantern With magical splendor the path enlights An owl is howling her war call: - Hold on birds, the hunt is about to begin.
So the fox sweetly talks to make him stay in the shelter. But the hedgehog excuses, and says: - Thank you for having invited me, but I prefer my humble house. The hedgehog is going, murmuring, above him the stars are shining: - My little house, the most beautiful paradise. It has feathers on the floor, maybe, fried larks decorate the ceiling.
While is running with cemetery silence, in front of him, on the trail appears the wolf. I will go with you, because I love fun, I want to see the hedgehog — the fool! The boar baths in it, sleepy looking and dreaming of food.
Blessed and in a happy mood repeats endlessly: - Sweet home, my freedom! The fox listens to this, and gave a healthy judgment: - Now I also see that the hedgehog has right! The butcher wolf, poor his mother, was quickly beaten to death by peasant chase. And the boar would fell down like a pear, from a hunting gun in winter.
