    At Wolgastsee grew a mighty tree. At first rather inconspicuous, but he quickly became more and more handsome. Every year it grew larger, its leaves juicier and its branches stretched in full beauty to the sky. Every bird that thought of itself tried to build a nest in the most beautiful tree of the Wolgastsee. At some point, that rose to the tree's head, or better, to Aste. He constantly admired his own reflection in the lake and sought with his conspecifics again and again confirmation of his appearance. At some point the other trees could not hear it anymore and complained to the boss of the Wolgastsee. But he did not want to hear about it. Give rest and clarify this among you, he said only. So the trees turned to the tree god. He listened to the complaints and decided to punish the vain tree. He put a curse on him, and so the tree, once so lopsided, lost all its leaves and became an ugly, bare tree. There he stands now and can not believe it. Again and again he looks into the water, but the picture does not change.He was getting calmer. Quietly he said: Please forgive me, I did not behave properly. Two trees took pity on him and stood by his side. They want to help him and asked the tree god how to turn the curse away again. He thinks there is a purple wand. If a person wants to save the cursed tree, he should seek the wand, return to the tree. and speak "Ubpuzhg xbzzg ibe qra Snyy" 3 times, swinging the stick from left to right. If the tree now has a pure soul, it is also redeemed.Source: Geocaching
