Cinderella (4)
When evening came she wanted to leave,
and the prince followed her, wanting to see into which house she went.
But she ran away from him and into the garden behind the house.
A beautiful tall tree stood there, on which hung the most magnificent pears.
She climbed as nimbly as a squirrel into the branches,
and the prince did not know where she had gone.
He waited until her father came, then said to him,
"The unknown girl has eluded me,
and I believe she has climbed up the pear tree.
 
 
The father thought, "Could it be Cinderella?"
He had an ax brought to him and cut down the tree,
but no one was in it.
When they came to the kitchen,
Cinderella was lying there in the ashes as usual,
for she had jumped down from the other side of the tree,
had taken the beautiful dress back to the bird in the hazel tree,
and had put on her gray smock.
 
 
On the third day, when her parents and sisters had gone away,
Cinderella went again to her mother's grave and said to the tree:
Shake and quiver, little tree,
Throw gold and silver down to me.
This time the bird threw down to her a dress
that was more splendid and magnificent than any she had yet had,
and the slippers were of pure gold.
When she arrived at the festival in this dress,
everyone was so astonished that they did not know what to say.
The prince danced only with her,
and whenever anyone else asked her to dance,
he would say, "She is my dance partner."
 

When evening came Cinderella wanted to leave,
and the prince tried to escort her,
but she ran away from him so quickly that he could not follow her.
The prince, however, had set a trap.
He had had the entire stairway smeared with pitch.
When she ran down the stairs,
her left slipper stuck in the pitch.
The prince picked it up.
It was small and dainty, and of pure gold.
The next morning, he went with it to the man, and said to him,
"No one shall be my wife except for the one whose foot fits this golden shoe."
 
 
The two sisters were happy to hear this,for they had pretty feet.
With her mother standing by,
the older one took the shoe into her bedroom to try it on.
She could not get her big toe into it,for the shoe was too small for her.
Then her mother gave her a knife and said, "
Cut off your toe.
When you are queen you will no longer have to go on foot."
 
 
The girl cut off her toe,forced her foot into the shoe,
swallowed the pain,and went out to the prince.
He took her on his horse as his bride and rode away with her.
However, they had to ride past the grave,
and there, on the hazel tree, sat the two pigeons, crying out:
Rook di goo, rook di goo!
There's blood in the shoe.
The shoe is too tight,
This bride is not right!
