Cinderella (2)
A white bird came to the tree every time,
and whenever she expressed a wish,
the bird would throw down to her what she had wished for.
Now it happened that the king proclaimed a festival that was to last three days.
All the beautiful young girls in the land were invited,
so that his son could select a bride for himself.
When the two stepsisters heard that they had been invited,
they were in high spirits.
 

They called Cinderella, saying,
"Comb our hair for us.
Brush our shoes and fasten our buckles.
We are going to the festival at the king's castle."
Cinderella obeyed, but wept,
because she too would have liked to go to the dance with them.
She begged her stepmother to allow her to go.
"You, Cinderella?" she said.
"You, all covered with dust and dirt,
and you want to go to the festival?. You have neither clothes nor shoes,
and yet you want to dance!"
 

However, because Cinderella kept asking,
the stepmother finally said,
"I have scattered a bowl of lentils into the ashes for you.
If you can pick them out again in two hours,
then you may go with us."
The girl went through the back door into the garden,
and called out, "You tame pigeons, you turtledoves,
and all you birds beneath the sky, come and help me to gather:
The good ones go into the pot,
The bad ones go into your crop."
 

Two white pigeons came in through the kitchen window,
and then the turtledoves,
and finally all the birds beneath the sky came whirring and swarming in,
and lit around the ashes.
The pigeons nodded their heads and began to pick, pick, pick, pick.
And the others also began to pick, pick, pick, pick.
They gathered all the good grains into the bowl.
Hardly one hour had passed before they were finished,
and they all flew out again.
 

The girl took the bowl to her stepmother, and was happy,
thinking that now she would be allowed to go to the festival with them.
But the stepmother said,
"No, Cinderella, you have no clothes,
and you don't know how to dance.
Everyone would only laugh at you."
Cinderella began to cry,
and then the stepmother said,
"You may go if you are able to pick two bowls of lentils out of the ashes for me in one hour,"
thinking to herself, "She will never be able to do that."
 

The girl went through the back door into the garden,
and called out, "You tame pigeons, you turtledoves,
and all you birds beneath the sky, come and help me to gather:
The good ones go into the pot,
The bad ones go into your crop."
Two white pigeons came in through the kitchen window,
and then the turtledoves,
and finally all the birds beneath the sky came whirring and swarming in,
and lit around the ashes.
