Cinderella (3)
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 bowls.
Before a half hour had passed they were finished, and they all flew out again.
The girl took the bowls to her stepmother, and was happy,
thinking that now she would be allowed to go to the festival with them.
But the stepmother said, "It's no use.
You are not coming with us, for you have no clothes,
and you don't know how to dance.
We would be ashamed of you."
 

With this she turned her back on Cinderella,
and hurried away with her two proud daughters.
Now that no one else was at home,
Cinderella went to her mother's grave beneath the hazel tree, and cried out:
Shake and quiver, little tree,
Throw gold and silver down to me.
Then the bird threw a gold and silver dress down to her,
and slippers embroidered with silk and silver.
She quickly put on the dress and went to the festival.
 

Her stepsisters and her stepmother did not recognize her.
They thought she must be a foreign princess,
for she looked so beautiful in the golden dress.
They never once thought it was Cinderella,
for they thought that she was sitting at home in the dirt,
looking for lentils in the ashes.
The prince approached her, took her by the hand, and danced with her.
Furthermore, he would dance with no one else.
 

He never let go of her hand,
and whenever anyone else came and asked her to dance,
he would say, "She is my dance partner."
She danced until evening, and then she wanted to go home.
But the prince said, "I will go along and escort you,"
for he wanted to see to whom the beautiful girl belonged.
However, she eluded him and jumped into the pigeon coop.
The prince waited until her father came,
and then he told him that the unknown girl had jumped into the pigeon coop.
The old man thought, "Could it be Cinderella?"
 

He had them bring him an ax and a pick
so that he could break the pigeon coop apart,
but no one was inside.
When they got home Cinderella was lying in the ashes,
dressed in her dirty clothes.
A dim little oil-lamp was burning in the fireplace.
Cinderella had quickly jumped down from the back of the pigeon coop
and had run to the hazel tree.
There she had taken off her beautiful clothes
and laid them on the grave,
and the bird had taken them away again.
Then, dressed in her gray smock, she had returned to the ashes in the kitchen.
 

The next day when the festival began anew,
and her parents and her stepsisters had gone again,
Cinderella went to the hazel tree and said:
Shake and quiver, little tree,
Throw gold and silver down to me.
Then the bird threw down an even more magnificent dress than on the preceding day.
When Cinderella appeared at the festival in this dress,
everyone was astonished at her beauty.
The prince had waited until she came,
then immediately took her by the hand,
and danced only with her.
When others came and asked her to dance with them,
he said, "She is my dance partner."
