A Fisher once took his bagpipes to the bank of a river, and
played upon them with the hope of making the fish rise; but never a one put his nose out of the water.
So he cast his net into the
river and soon drew it forth filled with fish.
Then he took his
bagpipes again, and, as he played, the fish leapt up in the net.
"Ah, you dance now when I play," said he.
"Yes," said an old Fish: "When you are in a man's power
you must do as he bids you."
