A riddling tale

日本語

なぞなぞ話


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?

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."
三人の女が野原に生える花に変身させられました。しかし、そのうちの1人は夜自分の家にいることが許されました。それであるとき、夜明けが近づいて野の仲間のところに戻りもう一度花にならなくてはいけなくなったとき、妻は「もし今日の午後来て私を摘んでくれたら、私は自由になりあなたと一緒にいられるわ。」と夫に言いました。そして夫はそうしました。

さて、問題です。夫はどのようにして妻がわかったのでしょう?というのは3つの花は全く似ていて、違いがないからです。

答―妻は夜の間家にいて野原にいなかったので、他の花には露が降りていたのに妻には降りていませんでした。それで夫は妻がわかったのです。
