Once upon a time, in a land not too distant from yours or mine, there lived a poor woodcutter and his wife. The couple had been trying for many years to have a child but with no success.
“If only I had a son to help me with my work!” the woodcutter wailed. “Then there would be more money to buy food for my wife.”
“If only I had a daughter to keep me company!” the woodcutter’s wife would lament. “Then I would not be so lonely while my husband is away.”
