The Fairy and the Frog  

There once was a fairy who sang merrily in the garden. Meriflur was her name. The other fairies told her “You may sing in the garden. You may sing down in the meadow, in the trees, or high in the sky, but whatever you do, don't go near the pond.” Little Meriflur just kept on singing merrily as she flew from flower to flower. Across the meadow and high in the trees her joyful song rang out. Soon her little voice was heard near the shore of the pond. So caught up in the joy of her song was she that she failed to notice what was lurking in the tall grasses. A hungry bullfrog! She flew a bit too near and that instant felt something wet and sticky wrap around her leg. Her wings beat furiously, but there was no escape. She was drawn into the bullfrog's cavernous mouth in the twinkling of an eye. It was wet and dark and the last thing little Meriflur knew was she couldn't breathe as her tiny body was forced down into the frog's stomach. So it came to pass that little Meriflur and her joyful song were no more.

Sad tale
This is a very sad tale but reinforces lessons we learn from childhood about heeding advice. I did enjoy Meriflur's singing though and the fact that she was so enraptured by the joy of expressing her feelings. It didn't particularly seem as though she met her fate through a deliberate act of rebellion but at the same time the tale reinforces the need for caution and the need to heed the advice and warnings of others who are more experienced.
