One evening, after thinking it over for some time,


Harold decided to go for a walk in the moonlight.

6
ckgj pkan ugha Fkk vkSj gSjYM dks ?kweus

There wasn't any moon, and Harold needed a


moon for a walk in the moonlight.

7
fiQj mls pyus ds fy, ,d lM+d Hkh pkfg, FkhA

And he needed something to walk on.

8
og [kks u tk, blfy, mlus viuh

He made a long straight path


so he wouldn't get lost.

9
fiQj og viuh eksVh isafly ysdj Vgyus fudykA

And he set off on his walk, taking


his big purple crayon with him.

10
ij jkLrk ,dne lh/k pyrk pyk tk jgk FkkA

But he didn't seem to be getting


anywhere on the long straight path.

11
fiQj mlus ixMaMh dks NksM+dj ,d [ksr dks ikj fd;kA
pkan Hkh mlds lkFk&lkFk pykA

So he left the path for a short cut across


a field. And the moon went with him.

12
tSlk fd gSjYM dks mEehn Fkh] og jkLrk

The short cut led right to where


Harold thought a forest ought to be.

13
gSjYM ?kus taxy esa [kksuk ugha pkgrk FkkA blfy, mlus
,d NksVk&lk taxy cuk;k ftlesa fliQZ ,d isM+ FkkA

He didn't want to get lost in the woods. So he


made a very small forest, with just one tree in it.

14
og isM+ lsc dk FkkA

It turned out to be an apple tree.

15
idus ds ckn lsc cgqr Lokfn"V gksaxs] gSjYM us lkspkA

The apples would be very tasty,


Harold thought, when they got red.

16
lscksa dh fgiQktr djus ds fy,

So he put a frightening dragon under


the tree to guard the apples.

17
og MªSxu okdbZ esa cgqr Hk;kud FkkA

It was a terribly frightening dragon.

18
MªSxu dks ns[kdj gSjYM Hkh Mj x;kA

It even frightened Harold. He backed away.

19
Mj ls mlds gkFk dh isafly FkjFkjkus yxhA

His hand holding the purple crayon shook.

20

Suddenly he realized what was happening.

21

But by then Harold was over his head in an ocean.

22
gSjYM us iQkSju lkspkA

He came up thinking fast.

23
mlus ,d NksVh&lh uko cukbZ vkSj mlesa p<+ x;kA

And in no time he was climbing


aboard a trim little boat.

24
fiQj mlus uko esa iky yxkbZA

He quickly set sail.

25
pkan Hkh mlds lkFk&lkFk rSjrk jgkA

And the moon sailed along with him.

26

After he had sailed long enough,


Harold made land without much trouble.

27

He stepped ashore on the beach,


wondering where he was.

28
leqnz ds rV dks ns[k gSjYM dks fidfud dh ;kn vkbZA

The sandy beach reminded Harold of picnics.


And the thought of picnics made him hungry.

29
fiQj mlus fidfud ds idoku cuk,A

So he laid out a nice simple picnic lunch.

30
gj Fkkyh feBkb;ksa ls Hkjh FkhA

There was nothing but pie.

31
ukS Fkkfy;ka gSjYM dh euilan feBkb;kas ls Hkjh FkhaA

But there were all nine kinds of pie


that Harold liked best.

32
gSjYM us tedj [kk;kA fiQj Hkh cgqr&lh feBkbZ cp xbZA

When Harold finished his picnic


there was quite a lot left.

33
bruh Lokfn"V feBkbZ csdkj gks]

He hated to see so much delicious pie go.

34
blfy, gSjYM us ,d Hkw[kk fgj.k vkSj ,d lkgh

So Harold left a very hungry moose and a


deserving porcupine to finish it up.

35
og vc dgka gS] ;g tkuus ds fy,

And, off he went, looking for a hill


to climb, to see where he was.

36
gSjYM dks irk Fkk fd og ftruk mQapk p<+sxk

blfy, mlus Vhys dks ,d igkM+h cuk;kA

Harold knew that the higher up he went the


farther he could see. So he decided
to make the hill into a mountain.

37
mls yxk fd cgqr mQapkbZ ls og vius ?kj

If he went high enough, he thought,


he could see the window of his bedroom.

38

He was tired and he felt


he ought to be getting to bed.

39

He hoped he could see his bedroom


window from the top of the mountain.

40

But as he looked down over


the other side he slipped-

41
igkM+h ds ml ikj dqN Hkh ugha FkkA

And there wasn't any-other side of the mountain.


He was falling, in thin air.

42
ijarq HkkX;o'k gSjYM us viuh vDy dk mi;ksx fd;kA

But, luckily, he kept his wits and


his purple crayon.

43
mlus isafly ls gok dk xqCckjk cuk;k

He made a balloon and he grabbed on to it.

44
gSjYM us xqCckjs ds uhps [kM+s

And he made a basket under the


balloon big enough to stand in.

45
mls bruh mQapkbZ ls cgqr dqN fn[kkbZ ns jgk Fkk]

He had a fine view from the balloon


but he couldn't see his window.
He couldn't even see a house.

46
blfy, gSjYM us ,d ?kj cuk;k

So he made a house, with windows.

47
fiQj mlus gok ds xqCckjs dks ?kj ds lkeus

And he landed the balloon


on the grass in the front yard.

48

None of the windows was his windows.

49
gSjYM viuh f[kM+dh ds ckjs esa lkspus yxkA

He tried to think where his window ought to be.

50
mlus ikl [kM+s iqfyleSu ls iwNkA

He decided to ask a policeman.

51

The policeman pointed the way Harold was going


anyway. But Harold thanked him.

52

But none of the windows was his window.

53

He couldn't think where it might be.

54
mls ;kn vk;k fd mlds csM:e dh f[kM+dh

He remembered where his bedroom window was,


when there was a moon.

55

It was always right around the moon.

56
fiQj gSjYM pkan ds lkFk&lkFk pyus yxkA dk'k!

And he walked along with the moon,


wishing he was in his room and in bed.

57
rHkh vpkud gSjYM dks ;kn vk;kA

Then, suddenly, Harold remembered.

58
mlus dqN vkSj f[kM+fd;ka cukb±A

He made some more windows.

59
fiQj mlus f[kM+fd;ksa ls Hkjh ,d cM+h bekjr cukbZA

He made a big building full of windows.

60
mlus cgqr lkjh mQaph bekjrsa cukb± vkSj

He made lots of buildings full of windows.

61
mlus f[kM+fd;kas ls iwjs 'kgj dks Hkj fn;kA

He made a whole city full of windows.

62
fiQj gSjYM us viuk iyax cuk;kA

And then Harold made his bed.

63
fiQj mlus jtkbZ cukbZ vkSj mls vks<+dj ysV x;kA

He got in it and he drew up the covers.

64

The purple crayon dropped on the floor.


And Harold dropped off to sleep.
