Little Tiny or Thumbelina
by Hans Christian Andersen(12)
 
 
"Oh, how beautiful he is!" whispered Tiny to the swallow.
The little prince was at first quite frightened at the bird,
who was like a giant, compared to such a delicate little creature as himself;
but when he saw Tiny,  he was delighted,
and thought her the prettiest little maiden he had ever seen.
 

He took the gold crown from his head,
and placed it on hers,
and asked her name ,
and if she would be his wife,
 and queen over all the flowers.
 

This certainly was a very different sort of husband
to the son of a toad,
 or the  mole, with black velvet and fur;
so she said, "Yes," to the handsome prince. 
Then all the flowers opened,
and out of each came a little lady or a tiny lord, 
all so pretty it was quite a pleasure to look at them.
Each of them brought Tiny a present;
but the best gift was a pair of beautiful wings,
which had belonged  to a large white fly
and they fastened them to Tiny's shoulders,
so that she might fly from flower to flower.
 

Then there was much rejoicing,
 and the little swallow who sat above them, in his  nest,
 was asked to sing a wedding song,
 which he did as well as he could;
 but in his heart he felt sad
 for he was very fond of Tiny,
and would have liked never  to part from her again.
"You must not be called Tiny any more,"
said the spirit of the flowers to her.
 " It is an ugly name,
 and you are so very pretty.
We will call you Maia."
 

"Farewell, farewell," said the swallow,
with a heavy heart as he left the warm countries to fly back into Denmark.
There he had a nest over the window of a house
 in which dwelt the writer of fairy tales.
The swallow sang, "Tweet, tweet,"
and from his song came the whole story.
