Stood on a hill and watched the countryside. The sun was shining, when coalesced, the hillsides are teeming with people, skopávali steep box. Peter was very sorry for them and the Lord Jesus said: Behold, Lord, we were in Wallachia, they just lie on pasture for their sheep in the mountains they grow juniper and the devil had taught them to fire him from the spirits that they have forgotten what their poverty. Then we came to Hanákům, they just sit at the table and eat. In the field they grow barley and Barley brew is learned to have more drink their feast.
 
 
Only the Slovaks after the toil here Kopanice, they have nothing grows except buckwheat and do not mind what lighten. Give them what would have consoled themselves in their work. Jesus smiled and said: Thy will be yours, Peter - but Slovak soul does not need water to make merry. At that moment was heard the song girls hillsides like a lark flies skyward. Jesus leaned on his cane, listened for a while, then got on the road with Peter. But stick stuck in the ground, the vine vypučela shrub scourge proceeded along the hillsides with clusters of vine and under their leaves in the hot sun poured heavy grapes. Their wine is bitter as a human work, as God's sweet smile and sparkle in the soul as a lark song. "
