A riddling tale


Der var engang tre koner som var blevet forvandlet til markblomster, men den ene af dem havde lov til at være hjemme om natten. En morgen, da hun igen måtte gå ud på marken til sine kammerater og blive en blomst, sagde hun til sin mand: "Hvis du kommer ud på marken i formiddag og plukker mig, bliver jeg frelst og kan altid blive hos dig." Men hvordan kunne han nu kende hende, for blomsterne så ganske ens ud?
Three women were changed into flowers which grew in the field, but one of them was allowed to be in her own home at night. Then once when day was drawing near, and she was forced to go back to her companions in the field and become a flower again, she said to her husband: "If thou wilt come this afternoon and gather me, I shall be set free and henceforth stay with thee." And he did so. Now the question is, how did her husband know her, for the flowers were exactly alike, and without any difference?


Jo, ser I, hun havde jo været hjemme om natten, og der var ikke faldet dug på hende som på de to andre, så derpå kendte manden hende.
Answer: "As she was at her home during the night and not in the field, no dew fell on her as it did on the others, and by this her husband knew her."
