Dear Teacher ,
How are you, I was reading this American folklore story but could not
understand its moral
The Black Cat's Message
I started down the road, hoping to get home before dark since I had not brought a lantern with me. I rounded a corner and saw a group of black cats standing in the middle of the road. They were nearly invisible in the growing dark.
As I drew nearer, I saw that they were carrying a stretcher between them. I stopped and rubbed my eyes. That was impossible. When I looked again, the stretcher was still there, and there was a little dead cat lying on it.
I was astonished. It must be a trick of the light, I thought. Then one of the cats called out, "Sir, please tell Aunt Kan that Polly Grundy is dead."
One more question what is meant by " I rounded a corner" ?
The term rounded the corner, could also be expressed this way
As I came around the corner.
I'm not sure that this little story has a moral. A talking cat! Ha
Black cats are associated with bad luck, which is a superstition, like breaking a mirror gives you seven years of bad luck. Hope this helps
