All at once a whirr and a cry was heard in the air, then the dwarf said,  »Now my masters the Ravens are coming flying home.«

Then they came in and wanted to eat and drink, and began to look about for their little plates and cups.  But they said one after another:  »Halloa! who has been eating off my plate?  Who has been drinking out of my cup?  There has been some human mouth here.«  And when the seventh came to the bottom of his cup the ring rolled up against his lips.  Then he looked at it and recognized it as a ring belonging to his father and mother and said,  »God grant that our sister may be here and that we may be delivered.«
