Folks and Poems-Devil’s Dance

Dear Friends, I am sharing with you another interesting story prepared by Maciek Hemlich.

DEVIL’S DANCE

In a certain village in a inn was a party. There came a lot of young people and musicians played music to dance. The girls were dressed like dolls and they swept the floor with their costumes. Only one wasn’t lucky because nobody danced with her. She was sittting alone in the corner and she sight to herself ‘If somebody showed me a little mercy and if devil (Purkt) came I would dance with him’. Immediately when she thought about it, the noise appeared as if the inn was falling down. Suddenly the one appeared similiar to the devil with big hornes and with fire in the mouth. He hit a floor by hooves and grabbed the girl for her dress and disappeared. Immediately participants of the party spread and run away as far as it possible from the inn.

Devils' dance In the village people told different stories in the secret how the Black Devil with hornes, horse hooves and cow tail kidnapped a girl to hell, that one who wanted to dance with him at the party.
