Fairy Tale Friday- The Buckwheat

The Buckwheat is a strange little fairy tale. It was so short that I had to read it a few times to gauge my opinion of it. It centres around a tree telling a sparrow a story and then the sparrow telling a man. The story is about the buckwheat which was the most beautiful grain. The buckwheat never used to bow down during a storm, so lightning decided to singe it as a punishment. The tree tells the sparrow (who later tells the man) that’s why buckwheat appears to be burned after a thunderstorm.

As I said, a really random fairy tale, it felt different to the previous Hans Christian Andersen tales I have read so far for this feature!
