The Ducks' Eggs

Categories: Ghost Stories

: Andrew Lang

A little girl of the author's family kept ducks and was anxious to

sell the eggs to her mother. But the eggs could not be found by eager

search. On going to bed she said, "Perhaps I shall dream of them".

Next morning she exclaimed, "I _did_ dream of them, they are in a

place between grey rock, broom, and mallow; that must be 'The Poney's

Field'!" And there the eggs were found. {11b}
