Страшная история на английском языке (текст к мультфильму «The Legend of Scarecrow», intermediate)
He worked in a wheat field. The work wasn’t very difficult but indeed, it was very lonely. Days and nights passed by with no one to talk to. The only thing he could do was to look at the birds. Each time they flew by, he would wave at them. But they never answered him. They flew away as if they were afraid of him.
One day the scarecrow did something forbidden. He offered a bird some seeds. But even so the bird didn’t seem to care. The scarecrow wondered why nobody wanted to be his friends.
And so time went by, until, one cold night, a blind crow fell at his feet. The crow was shivering and starved to death. The scarecrow decided to take care of him. After several days, the blind crow got better.
The scarecrow told the crow how he wrapped the bird in a scarf and gave him seeds to eat. Before the crow flew off the scarecrow asked why the birds never wanted to be friends with the scarecrows. And the crow explained that the job of the scarecrows was to scare the poor birds. They are evil. Monsters! Humiliated, the scarecrow replied: ”That is not true! Take me, for example. I am not evil. And I am a scarecrow.” And one more time the scarecrow was left without friends.
The same night he took a decision. The scarecrow wanted another job. No longer wanted he frighten birds. Seeing his scarecrow talking, the farmer screamed. Terrified the farmer woke up all his neighbours. He told everybody that his scarecrow had come alive and that could only be work of the Devil. …..
The scarecrow was screaming but nobody did care except of few crows flying around. One of them was the blind crow. He told his friends that the villagers were burning a windmill where a scarecrow with a very long scarf was trying to hide. The blind bird told them that he was the good scarecrow who saved him his life. Moved by the story, the crows longed to save the scarecrow. But it was too late and they couldn’t do anything. The scarecrow burned to death.
The crows waited until dawn and, when the flames had died down, they went up to the remains of windmill, took the ashes of the scarecrow and flew high up, very high…. And up on high they scattered the ashes through the air.
The wind carried the ashes all across the country. The ashes flew side by side with all the birds. This way, the scarecrow never had to be alone again because his ashes now were flying with his new friends. In memory of the tragic death of the scarecrow, the blind crow and all his friends decided to dress in mourning. And, that is why, since then all crows are black, in memory of the scarecrow who wanted to be friend of the birds.
