The Fish and Marsh In the middle of huge mountains, near the beautiful forest there was a clean and beautiful lake. Its bottom was garnished with nice water-plants, all kind of creatures which lived there were busy by getting some food or running after each other all day long. But one little fish couldn’t find its quiet place in that huge lake. Either carp was biting its tail, or any other big fish was running after it. The frightened fish didn’t know where to seek shelter. Its friend advised fish many times: “make your own little house and live calmly.” But the little fish was repeating stubbornly: “This is because the lake is so bad. Somewhere there should be bigger and deeper lakes and there is more interesting and calm world. And I’m locked in this small mud. I wish to get out of here.” The fish was dreaming about all this and had no rest. Once there arrived the pod of cranes near the bank of the beautiful lake. The little fish was surprised and delighted by looking those big and strange birds, which were flying to faraway places and landed near the lake bank to take a rest. The beautiful birds were proudly walking around the bank. Some of them were moving their wing, the other were sleeping with their one folded up leg. The cranes rested well and now were ready to leave the lake. During the whole this time the fish was looking at them. But at last the fish lost its patience, swam closer and asked them: “You are flying to faraway places, aren’t you? So please, take me with you, I’m small and it’s easy to carry me. The cranes carefully picked up the little fish and the whole pod flew up in the sky. After a while the pod of cranes flew over one lake. The lake covered with colorful flowers and grass seemed very beautiful from above. Not even the breeze was waving its surface and that place looked very calm and serene. As the fish saw this place it started shouting: “leave me right there, this beautiful, colorful and calm place is for me!” Cranes landed carefully and put the fish in the water. “I don’t think this is the place you dreamed about. – Said the crane – but if you insist, you can stay here. In autumn we are coming back and we will come to see you too.” The cranes flew up in the sky again and the fish stayed in its dream-place. Time passed. The autumn came. The cranes were on their way home and decided to visit the fish as they promised. The cranes were not landed yet when the fish already met them. “Please take me out of here! Take me away from this horrible marsh!” – was begging the fish. “Why should we take you? You like this place so much from above, why do you ask us to take you back?” – ask the surprised crane. The fish couldn’t allay anymore and began to cry: “I was so wrong. The place which seemed so beautiful, deep and calm from above, it appeared to be very dirty, impassable and sunless marsh. The marsh and nothing else! I made a mistake when I judged everything only by its surface; the main thing is what in the depth and can’t be seen at first, until you know it well enough.”
