And now this is how things stood: The cat was sitting on one branch. The
bird on another, not too close to the cat. And the wolf walked round and
round the tree, looking at them with greedy eyes.
In the meantime, Peter, without the slightest fear, stood behind the
gate, watching all that was going on. He ran home,got a strong rope and
climbed up the high stone wall.
One of the branches of the tree, around which the wolf was walking,
stretched out over the wall.
Grabbing hold of the branch, Peter lightly climbed over on to the
tree. Peter said to the bird: "Fly down and circle round the wolf's
head, only take care that he doesn't catch you!".
The bird almost touched the wolf's head with its wings, while the wolf
snapped angrily at him from this side and that.
How that bird teased the wolf, how that wolf wanted to catch him! But
the bird was clever and the wolf simply couldn't do anything about it.
