The Brave Tin Soldier(2)

Only the tin soldier and the dancer remained in their places.
She stood on tiptoe, with her legs stretched out,
as firmly as he did on his one leg.
He never took his eyes from her for even a moment.
 
The clock struck twelve,
and, with a bounce, up sprang the lid of the snuff-box;
but, instead of snuff,
there jumped up a little black goblin;
for the snuff-box was a toy puzzle.
“Tin soldier,” said the goblin,
“don’t wish for what does not belong to you.”
But the tin soldier pretended not to hear.
“Very well; wait till to-morrow, then,” said the goblin.
 

When the children came in the next morning,
they placed the tin soldier in the window.
Now, whether it was the goblin who did it, or the draught, is not known,
but the window flew open,
and out fell the tin soldier, heels over head,
from the third story, into the street beneath.
It was a terrible fall;
for he came head downwards,
his helmet and his bayonet stuck in between the flagstones,
and his one leg up in the air.
 

The servant maid and the little boy went down stairs directly to look for him;
but he was nowhere to be seen,
although once they nearly trod upon him.
If he had called out, “Here I am,” it would have been all right,
but he was too proud to cry out for help while he wore a uniform.
 

Presently it began to rain,
and the drops fell faster and faster,
till there was a heavy shower.
When it was over, two boys happened to pass by,
and one of them said, “Look, there is a tin soldier.
He ought to have a boat to sail in.”
 

So they made a boat out of a newspaper,
and placed the tin soldier in it,
and sent him sailing down the gutter,
while the two boys ran by the side of it,
and clapped their hands.
Good gracious, what large waves arose in that gutter!
and how fast the stream rolled on!
for the rain had been very heavy.
The paper boat rocked up and down,
and turned itself round sometimes so quickly that the tin soldier trembled;
yet he remained firm; his countenance did not change;
he looked straight before him, and shouldered his musket.
