    "'King Haaken, King Haaken!'
    "'Yes,' answered King Haaken, till it sounded all over the hills.
    "'King Haaken, my son, will you get married?' it cried again in the hill.
    "'Yes, that I will,' said King Haaken, 'if I can have Barbro in the dairy over yonger!'
    "'Yes, yes, we'll see to that,' Barbro heard the voice in the hill answer, and she got so frightened that she did not know what to do... (Folk and Fairy Tales, Asbjörnsen, 1883)
