The winter grew colder. One night he was so tired that he fell asleep on the ice.

A farmer found him on the ice and he took him home. His children wanted to play with him, but he was frightened, and ran away from them. He flew into the milk and then landed in the flour tub.

The children laughed at him and tried to catch him.

He ran away again and hid among the reeds in the marsh all through the cold winter months.
