Wilde Oscar. The Fisherman and his Soul
When you fall in love, you could lose your mind. This a little tale about the most important. A young fisherman went into the sea for fishing every day. Sometimes his catch was good, sometimes bad. One day he caught a sleeping mermaid in his net. When she woke up, she cried and told to the fisherman that her father is a King of the Sea and asked him to let her go. The fisherman agreed, but in exchange for freedom, the mermaid had to come to him when he ask her and to sing songs for a good fishing.
Every evening the young Fisherman went out upon the sea, and threw his nets into the water. When the wind blew from the land he caught nothing, or but little at best, for it was a bitter and black-winged wind, and rough waves rose up to meet it. But when the wind blew to the shore, the fish came in from the deep, and swam into the meshes of his nets, and he took them to the market-place and sold them. Every evening he went out upon the sea, and one evening the net was so heavy that hardly could he draw it into the boat. He tugged at the thin ropes, and nearer and nearer came the circle of flat corks, and the net rose at last to the top of the water. But no fish at all was in it, nor any monster or thing of horror, but only a little Mermaid lying fast asleep. Her hair was as a wet fleece of gold, and each separate hair as a thread of fine gold in a cup of glass.
