The miller’s wife attempts to reclaim her husband, but is turned away roughly by the mayor’s bodyguards.
All alone, the miller’s wife gazes sorrowfully into the distance.
From afar, in the stillness of the night, she hears a song…
“At night the cuckoo calls, warning married people to shut their bolts tightly, because the devil isn’t sleeping! At night, the cuckoo calls: ‘Cuckoo, Cuckoo, Cuckoo!”
Still gazing into the night, she walks slowly back to the house, candle in hand.
