The Christmas Cuckoo PART TWO OF FIVE ~ CONTINUES NEXT WEEK
BY FRANCES BROWNE
Then suddenly from out the blazing root they heard: “Cuckoo! cuckoo!” as plain as ever the spring-bird’s voice came over the moor on a May morning. “What is that?” said Scrub, terribly frightened; “it is something bad!” “Maybe not,” said Spare. And out of the deep hole at the side of the root, which the fire had not reached, flew a large, gray cuckoo, and lit on the table before them. Much as the cobblers had been surprised, they were still more so when it said: “Good gentlemen, what season is this?” “It’s Christmas,” said Spare. “Then a merry Christmas to you!” said the cuckoo. “I went to sleep in the hollow of that old root one evening last summer, and never woke till the heat of your fire made me think it was summer again. But now since you have burned my lodging, let me stay in your hut till the spring comes round, -- I only want a hole to sleep in, and when I go on my travels next summer be assured I will bring you some present for your trouble.” “Stay and welcome,” said Spare, while Scrub sat wondering if it were something bad or not. “I’ll make you a good warm hole in the thatch,” said Spare. “But you must be hungry after that long sleep, -- here is a slice of barley bread. Come help us to

keep Christmas!” The cuckoo ate up the slice, drank water from a brown jug, and flew into a snug hole which Spare scooped for it in the thatch of the hut.
bud, or flowers bloom, that I will not cry in before the year goes round. Give me another slice of barley bread to help me on my journey, and tell me what present I shall bring you at the twelve-
gold. Every winter they fall into the well with a sound like scattered coin, and I know not what becomes of them. As for the other, it is always green like a laurel. Some call it the wise, and some the merry, tree. Its leaves never fall, but they that get one of them keep a blithe heart in spite of all misfortunes, and can make themselves as merry in a hut as in a palace.”

Scrub said he was afraid it wouldn’t be lucky; but as it slept on and the days passed he forgot his fears. So the snow melted, the heavy rains came, the cold grew less, the days lengthened, and one sunny morning the brothers were awakened by the cuckoo shouting its own cry to let them know the spring had come. “Now I’m going on my travels,” said the bird, “over the world to tell men of the spring. There is no country where trees

month’s end.” Scrub would have been angry with his brother for cutting so large a slice, their store of barley being low, but his mind was occupied with what present it would be most prudent to ask for. “There are two trees hard by the well that lies at the world’s end,” said the cuckoo; “one of them is called the golden tree, for its leaves are all of beaten

Date Nut Pudding Cake with Caramel Sauce (Many ingredients available at Bushels) Cake
2 c. brown sugar 3 1/2 cups water, divided 1/4 c. salted butter 1/2 c. Clear Jel or cornstarch 2 tsp. maple or vanilla extract
Whipped Topping 2 cups whipping cream 1/3 c. powdered sugar 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Garnish, optional 2 bananas, peeled and sliced Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine dates with boiling water and butter.
Allow to set for 10 minutes. Pour mixture into a greased 9x9 pan. In a small bowl, mix by hand, flour, sugar, baking powder, eggs, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and walnuts. Spread over date mixture. Bake for 2530 minutes. Cool completely and cut into small squares. For caramel sauce: In saucepan mix brown sugar, butter and 2 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil then reduce heat but keeping it at a steady boil, stirring frequently for 20 minutes. Mix the remaining 1 cup of water with Clear Jel or cornstarch until dissolved completely.

Just before serving layer all ingredients in a pretty glass bowl, starting with cake on the bottom, caramel sauce then whipping cream, saving a little of the sauce to drizzle over the top. Garnish the top with sliced bananas if desired. Make it a day ahead and store the sauce and whipped topping in the fridge. The sauce might get a little thick so get it out and let it warm up a bit on your counter before using it.
