One time I was tired of being young.
So, I wished myself into an old man.
but I was dying!
The children gathered around saying
"Do not die.
Let's go out and have a day.
Look! the moon is forgiving us with another sun."
But I was sweating, and I said "It is time.
That log has hollowed itself out and waits for me.
My old spirit already has its shoes on."
Then I crawled into the log with the moon just beginning to forgive me.
