The Wolf and the Fox

Adapted from http://www.grimmstories.com/en/grimm_fairy-tales/the_wolf_and_the_fox

The wolf had a fox with her, and whatsoever the wolf wished, that the fox was compelled to do, for she was the weaker and she could gladly have been rid of her mistress. It chanced that once as they were going through the forest, the wolf said, “Red-fox get me something to eat or else I will eat thee thyself.” Then the fox answered, “I know a farm-yard where there are two young lambs; if thou art inclined, we will fetch one of them.” That suited the wolf, and they went thither and the fox stole the little lamb, took it to the world and went away. The wolf devoured it but was not satisfied with one; she wanted the other one was well and went to get it. As, however, she did it so awkwardly, the father of the little lamb heard her and began to cry out terribly and to bleat so that the farmer came running there. They found the wolf and beat her so mercilessly that she went to the fox limping and howling. “Thou hast misled me finely,” said she, “I wanted to fetch the other lamb and the country folks surprised m and have beaten me to a jelly.”

The fox replied, “Why art thou such a glutton?”

There was once a poor Princess, who had a kingdom. Her kingdom was very small, but still quite large enough to marry upon; and she wished to marry.

It was certainly rather cool of her to say to the Empress’s daughter, “Will you have me?” But so she did; for her name was renowned far and wide and there were a hundred princes who would have answered, “Yes!” and “Thank you kindly.” We shall see what this prince said.

Listen!

The Little Merboy Part 4 of 4

womantoman:

Adapted from http://www.andersenstories.com/en/andersen_fairy-tales/the_little_mermaid

So he passed quickly through the wood and the marsh and between the rushing whirlpools. He saw that in his mother’s palace the torches in the ballroom were extinguished and all within asleep. But he did not venture to go in to them, for now he was dumb and going to leave them forever. He felt as if his heart would break. He stole into the garden, took a flower from the flower-beds of each of his brothers, kissed his hand a thousand times towards the palace and then rose up through the dark blue waters. The sun had not risen when he came in sight of the princess’s palace and approached the beautiful marble steps but the moon shone clear and bright. Then the little merboy drank the magic draught and it seemed as if a two-edged sword went through his delicate body: he fell into a swoon and lay like one dead. When the sun arose and shone over the sea he recovered and felt a sharp pain but just before him stood the handsome young princess. She fixed her coal-black eyes upon him so earnestly that he cast down his own and then became aware that his fish’s tail was gone and that he had as pretty a pair of white legs and tiny feet as any little boy could have but he had no clothes, so he wrapped himself in his long, thick hair. The princess asked him who he was and where he came from and he looked at her mildly and sorrowfully with his deep blue eyes but he could not speak. Every step he took was as the witch had said it would be, he felt as if he was treading upon the points of needles or sharp knives but he bore it willingly and stepped as lightly by the princess’s side as a soap-bubble so that she and all who saw him wondered at his graceful-swaying movements. He was soon arrayed in costly robes of silk and muslin and was the most beautiful creature in the palace but he was dumb and could neither speak nor sing.
