Thumbelina
 
THERE was once a woman
who wished very much to have a little child,
but  she could not obtain her wish.
At last she went to a fairy, and said,
 "I should  so very much like to have a little child;
 can you tell me where I can find one? "
"Oh, that can be easily managed," said the fairy.
 "Here is a barleycorn of a different kind
 to those which grow in the farmer's fields,
and which the chickens eat;
put it into a flower-pot,
and see what will happen."
"Thank you," said the woman,
and she gave the fairy twelve shillings,
which was  the price of the barleycorn.
Then she went home and planted it,
and immediately  there grew up a large handsome flower,
something like a tulip in appearance,
 but  with its leaves tightly closed
 as if it were still a bud.
"It is a beautiful flower," said the woman,
and she kissed the red and golden-colored leaves,
and while she did so the flower opened,
and she could see that it was a real tulip.
Within the flower,
upon the green velvet stamens,
sat a very delicate and graceful  little maiden.
She was scarcely half as long as a thumb,
and they gave her the name of "Thumbelina," or Tiny,
 because she was so small.
A walnut-shell,
elegantly polished,
served her for a cradle;
her bed was formed of blue violet-leaves,
with a rose-leaf for a counterpane.
Here she slept at night,
but during the days she amused herself on a table,
where the woman had placed a plateful of water.
Round this plate were wreaths of flowers
with their stems in the water,
and upon it floated a large tulip-leaf,
which served Tiny for a boat.
Here the little maiden sat and rowed herself from side to side,
with two oars made of white horse-hair.
 It really was a very pretty sight.
Tiny could, also, sing so softly and sweetly
 that nothing like her singing had ever before been heard.
