He thought that summer had come, and that he didn’t need his coat. So, he sold it. However, a changetookplace in the weather. There came a sharpfrost. It killed the unfortunate Swallow. When the poor man saw the dead swallow he said, “Poor bird! You died of cold and I am going to die of cold myself because of you.”
