Little Tiny or Thumbelina
by Hans Christian Andersen(11)
 
 
At length they reached the warm countries,
where the sun shines brightly,
and the sky seems so much higher above the earth.
 Here, on the hedges, and by the wayside,
grew purple, green, and white grapes;
 lemons and oranges hung from trees in  the woods;
and the air was fragrant with myrtles and orange blossoms.
Beautiful  children ran along the country lanes,
playing with large gay butterflies;
and as the swallow flew farther and farther,
every place appeared still more lovely.
 

At last they came to a blue lake,
 and by the side of it,
shaded by trees of the  deepest green,
 stood a palace of dazzling white marble,
 built in the olden times .
Vines clustered round its lofty pillars,
and at the top were many swallows' nests,
and one of these was the home of the swallow who carried Tiny.
 

"This is my house," said the swallow;
 "but it would not do for you to live there
-you would not be comfortable.
You must choose for yourself one of those lovely  flowers,
and I will put you down upon it,
and then you shall have everything that you can wish to make you happy."
 

"That will be delightful," she said,
and clapped her little hands for joy.
A large marble pillar lay on the ground,
 which, in falling, had been broken into  three pieces.
Between these pieces grew the most beautiful large white flowers; 
so the swallow flew down with Tiny,
and placed her on one of the broad leaves. 
 

But how surprised she was to see in the middle of the flower a tiny little man,
 as white and transparent as if he had been made of crystal.
 He had a gold crown  on his head,
and delicate wings at his shoulders,
and was not much larger than  Tiny herself.
He was the angel of the flower;
 for a tiny man and a tiny woman dwell in every flower;
and this was the king of them all.
