The rabbit's bride

There was once a woman who lived with her daughter in a beautiful cabbage-garden; and there came a rabbit and ate up all the cabbages. At last said the woman to her daughter, Go into the garden, and drive out the rabbit. Shoo! shoo! said the maiden; don't eat up all our cabbages, little rabbit! Come, maiden, said the rabbit, sit on my tail and go with me to my rabbit-hutch. But the maiden would not. Another day, back came the rabbit, and ate away at the cabbages, until the woman said to her daughter, Go into the garden, and drive away the rabbit. Shoo! shoo! said the maiden; don't eat up all our cabbages, little rabbit! Come, maiden, said the rabbit, sit on my tail and go with me to my rabbit-hutch. But the maiden would not. Again, a third time back came the rabbit, and ate away at the cabbages, until the woman said to her daughter, Go into the garden, and drive away the rabbit.
