“Everyone knows that Waboseg (Rabbits) love wildflowers. In the warmest days of spring, when young Zweegun (Springtime) arrives from the south, to coax old Biboon (Winter) back to his home in the north, the rabbits begin to nibble.” But Zweegun, being just a young girl, “kept forgetting about the job she was supposed to do.” Zweegun's forgetfulness causes the Waboseg to eat too many wildflowers, causing the Amoog (Bees) to make less honey, causing the Mukwag (Bears) to make a difficult decision—and the Waboseg wind up with long ears.
