Little Tiny or Thumbelina
by Hans Christian Andersen(5)
 
 
It began to snow too;
and the snow-flakes,
as they fell upon her,
 were  like a whole shovelful falling upon one of us,
for we are tall, but she was only  an inch high.
Then she wrapped herself up in a dry leaf,
 but it cracked in the  middle and could not keep her warm,
and she shivered with cold.
Near the wood in  which she had been living lay a corn-field,
 but the corn had been cut a long time;
nothing remained but the bare dry stubble
 standing up out of the frozen ground.
It was to her like struggling through a large wood.
Oh! how she shivered with the cold.
She came at last to the door of a field-mouse,
who had a little den  under the corn-stubble.
There dwelt the field-mouse in warmth and comfort,
 with  a whole roomful of corn, a kitchen, and a beautiful dining room.
Poor little Tiny stood before the door just like a little beggar-girl,
and begged for a small piece of barley-corn,
for she had been without a morsel to eat for two days.
 

"You poor little creature," said the field-mouse,
who was really a good old field-mouse,
 "come into my warm room and dine with me."
She was very pleased with Tiny,
 so she said, "You are quite welcome to stay with me all the winter, if you like;
but you must keep my rooms clean and neat, and tell me stories,
for I shall  like to hear them very much."
 And Tiny did all the field-mouse asked her,
and found herself very comfortable.
"We shall have a visitor soon," said the field-mouse one day;
"my neighbor pays  me a visit once a week.
He is better off than I am;
he has large rooms,
and wears a beautiful black velvet coat.
If you could only have him for a husband,
you would be well provided for indeed.
 But he is blind,
so you must tell him some of  your prettiest stories."
 

But Tiny did not feel at all interested about this neighbor,
for he was a mole.
However, he came and paid his visit dressed in his black velvet coat.
"He is very rich and learned,
and his house is twenty times larger than mine," said the field-mouse.
 

He was rich and learned, no doubt,
but he always spoke slightingly of the sun and the pretty flowers,
 because he had never seen them.
Tiny was obliged to sing to him,
 "Lady-bird, lady-bird, fly away home,"
and many other pretty songs.
