Plot synopsis
Romale, you are young and you don't know that we were birds aforetime (speaks Gipsy). Listen to an old Gipsy's story. Every Gipsy had wings aforetime. We used to fly like birds do. We used to eat the same food as birds do. When it got colder in autumn (speaks Gipsy) we started our journey. It's true, Romale, that we were birds aforetime. If it were not for the following thing, we would fly over the world like free birds even by now.
