p. 246.

1. ‘Sad is that O descendants of Corra on the depths of the blue
ocean; O Lord and God from heaven, what makes you sad?’

2. ‘This is the reason of our being downcast, O little bird in the
boat, that the little jester that was in our company has been snatched
by an unknown death.’

3. ‘I am your good jester; I have come to you in the form of a bird;
just now have I come from heaven, so that for God’s sake you be
not sorrowful.’
