The Moon in the Pond

Every now and again, Brer Fox and Brer Rabbit would shake hands and make peace for a while, and, following their example, all the critters would forget their arguments and get along together just dandy. It had been like this for some weeks when Brer Rabbit ran into Brer Turtle and they got talking.

“It sure is peaceful around here now,” sighed Brer Rabbit.

“Yep,” nodded Brer Turtle, who was a man of few words.

“It sure is quiet,” sighed Brer Rabbit.

“Yep,” nodded Brer Turtle.

“Peaceful and quiet is good, but it ain’t fun like in the old days, is it Brer Turtle? ” asked Brer Rabbit.

“Nope,” agreed Brer Turtle.

“I think that the folks around here could do with a dose of fun again,” sighed Brer Rabbit.

“Yep,” nodded Brer Turtle.

Brer Rabbit bounced to his feet with a chuckle. “Then I’m going to invite everyone to a little fishing frolic at the pond tomorrow night, ” he said. “I’ll do all the talking as long as you back me up with your ‘yep’ and ‘nope’ now and then.” And Brer Rabbit and Brer Turtle shook hands. Brer Rabbit loped off to do the inviting and Brer Turtle set out for the pond, so as he’d be sure to get there on time.

Sure enough, the following night, everyone was there at the pond. Brer Bear and Brer Wolf had brought their hooks and lines. Brer Turtle carried a pot of wriggling bait. After that Brer Fox brought his fishing net.

Miss Meadows and Miss Motts brought themselves, dressed up to the nines.

While Brer Turtle shook his pot at Miss Meadows and Miss Morts and made them squeal with delight, Brer Bear announced he was going to fish for mudcats. After that Brer Wolf said he was going to fish for honey heads. Brer Fox declared he was going to fish for perch for the ladies. And Brer Rabbit winked at Brer Turtle and said he was going to fish for suckers.

So everyone got busy with their hooks and their lines and their bait, and Brer Rabbit went to cast his line first.

” I don’t believe it?” he gasped, peering into the water and scratching his head.

“The Moon has done gone and fell in the water!”

Therefore everyone looked serious and gathered around and tut-tutted and well – welled and my myed as they looked into the pond and saw the Moon floating there like a big, pale coin.

“There ain’t no fish gonna come swimmin’ through this water unless we get the Moon out of the way,” said Brer Rabbit.

“Isn’t that so, Brer Turtle?”

“Yep,” nodded Brer Turtle, with a twinkle in his eye.

“So how we gonna get the Moon out, Brer Rabbit ? ” worried Miss Meadows.

” Hmm,” pondered Brer Rabbit, thoughtfully.

“I’ve got it! We borrow Brer Turtle’s dragnet, and we drag it across the pond, and we drag the Moon right out!”

“That’s it !” breathed everyone, excitedly.

“That’s surely it!”

“It doesn’t bother you none if we borrow your dragnet, does it, Brer Turtle?” asked Brer Rabbit.

“Nope,” replied Brer Turtle, trying hard not to collapse into laughter.

Then Brer Rabbit leaped off to fetch Brer Turtle’s dragnet and was back again before anyone could say “lickety-split”. “I think I’d better be the one to do the dragging,” Brer Rabbit sighed. “It needs someone mighty clever and mighty muscley.”

At that, Brer Fox and Brer Bear and Brer Wolf sprang forward and insisted on taking the dragnet from Brer Rabbit. After all, they didn’t want to look like saps in front of the ladies, now, did they?

Brer Fox and Brer Bear and Brer Wolf walked gingerly down to the edge of the pond with the net. They cast it into the water, dragged it along, and heaved it out, dripping When the ripples had settled on the pond, there was the Moon, shining just as bright in the water as before.

“Nope!” cried Brer Rabbit. “You need to go deeper.”

Brer Fox and Brer Bear and Brer Wolf waded knee-deep into the cold pond. Once again, they cast out the dragnet, and once again they pulled it in without having caught the Moon.

“Try again a little deeper,” yelled Brer Rabbit from the nice, dry bank. “You’ll surely get it next time.” And Miss Meadows and Miss Motts eagerly waved them further out.

After that Brer Fox and Brer Bear and Brer Wolf took one more step and suddenly the bottom of the pond fell away steeply and there was no more mud under their feet and they were ducked right under the water! Up they popped, choking and splashing and spluttering.

After that, Miss Meadows and Miss Motts giggled and snickered as Brer Fox and Brer Bear and Brer Wolf hauled themselves out of the pond. They were a sight for sore eyes, dripping water from every hair and covered all over in waterweed.

I’ve heard that the Moon will always bite if you use fools for bait, Brer Rabbit giggled, looking them up and down. Now if you’re asking me, “You gentlemen ought to get yourselves home and into some dry clothes. “And as Brer Fox and Brer Bear and Brer Wolf slopped and slapped away into the moonlight, Brer Turtle and Brer Rabbit went home with the girls.
