The Little Nun—La munachedda

Once upon a time there was a father and a mother who had a daughter.Before the father went to work in the fields, he said to his wife,“When the soup is ready, have the girl carry it to me.” At noon the mother cooked the soup and told the daughter to carry it to

her father. To make sure she would find her way home, her mother gave her some bran to spread along the path. After the girl had brought the soup to her father, she found that the wind had carried away the bran so that she couldn’t find her way back home. When it became dark, the girl began to weep and said, “What am I going to do? It’s become night, and I’m far away from my father and mother.”
