Prince Gvidon welcoming a ship and the thirty-three knights led by old Chernomor, rising every day from out of the raging sea ready to serve him;
and there, in the courtyard, is the squirrel that sits under a fir tree all day long gnawing on golden nuts containing kernels of pure emerald, with guards to stand watch and scribe to record every shell.
