Here's Piya (Coyote); Here're Tapon's (Cottontail's) children.
Piya has shiny black eyes.
He saw the game that Tapon's children were playing.
They were taking their eyes from their heads and throwing them up into the air and then catching them in their eye sockets.
Piya wanted to play.
He took his eyes out from his head and threw them up into the air.
His eyes hung on a sēnette tree branch.
He shook the tree but he didn't make his eyes fall down.
They laughed at him and called him funny names.
Piya got angry and chased after them.
He did not have the ability to catch them so he left.
He had to make new eyes from tree resin.
Therefore, Piya's eyes are yellow now.
