Little Tiny or Thumbelina

by Hans Christian Andersen(4)
 
 
Oh, how frightened little Tiny felt when the cockchafer flew with her to the tree!
But especially was she sorry for the beautiful white butterfly which  she had fastened to the leaf,
for if he could not free himself he would die of  hunger.
But the cockchafer did not trouble himself at all about the matter.
He seated himself by her side on a large green leaf,
gave her some honey from the flowers to eat,
and told her she was very pretty,
though not in the least like a cockchafer.
 

After a time, all the cockchafers turned up their feelers,
 and said, "She has only two legs!
how ugly that looks."
 "She has no feelers," said another.
 "Her waist is quite slim.
Pooh! she is like a human being."
"Oh! she is ugly," said all the lady cockchafers,
although Tiny was very pretty.
 

Then the cockchafer who had run away with her,
believed all the others when they  said she was ugly,
and would have nothing more to say to her,
and told her she  might go where she liked.
Then he flew down with her from the tree,
and placed her on a daisy,
and she wept at the thought that she was so ugly
that even the cockchafers would have nothing to say to her.
And all the while she was really the  loveliest creature that one could imagine,
and as tender and delicate as a beautiful rose-leaf.
 

During the whole summer
 poor little Tiny lived quite alone in the wide forest.
She wove herself a bed with blades of grass,
and hung it up under a broad leaf,
to protect herself from the rain.
She sucked the honey from the  flowers for food,
and drank the dew from their leaves every morning.
So passed away the summer and the autumn,
and then came the winter,- the long, cold winter.
All the birds who had sung to her so sweetly were flown away,
and the trees and the flowers had withered.
The large clover leaf under the shelter of  which she had lived,
was now rolled together and shrivelled up,
nothing remained but a yellow withered stalk.
She felt dreadfully cold,
 for her clothes were torn,
and she was herself so frail and delicate,
that poor little Tiny was nearly  frozen to death.
