Here the narrator realized that there should be two different refrains in the dialogue: "dantenie" for the chant of the Silver bird and "dexenie" for the chant of the Iron bird. The refrain "dantenie" is rather frequent, see Nikolaeva et al. (2002: 137), Simonov et al. (1998, text 11) and Kazama (2004 (A) # 15).
