The Moon In The Well – Story

One night the Hodja looked into his well and saw there the reflection of the full moon.<>

“Oh no!” he exclaimed. “The moon has fallen from the sky and into my well!”<>

He ran into his house and returned with a hook attached to a rope.<>

He then threw the hook into the water and commenced to pull it up again, but it became stuck on the side of the well.<>

Frantically the Hodja tugged and pulled with all his might.<>

The hook suddenly came loose, and the Hodja fell over backwards, landing flat on his back.<>

Scarcely able to move, he looked up into the sky and saw the full moon above him.<>

“I may have injured myself in doing so,” he said with satisfaction, “but at least I got the moon back into the sky where it belongs.”<>
