Cinderella (1)
A rich man's wife became sick,
and when she felt that her end was drawing near,
she called her only daughter to her bedside and said,
"Dear child, remain pious and good,
and then our dear God will always protect you,
and I will look down on you from heaven and be near you."
With this she closed her eyes and died.
The girl went out to her mother's grave every day and wept,
and she remained pious and good.
 
 
 
When winter came the snow spread a white cloth over the grave,
and when the spring sun had removed it again,
the man took himself another wife.
This wife brought two daughters into the house with her.
They were beautiful, with fair faces, but evil and dark hearts.
Times soon grew very bad for the poor stepchild.
"Why should that stupid goose sit in the parlor with us?" they said.
"If she wants to eat bread, then she will have to earn it.
Out with this kitchen maid!"
 
 
 
They took her beautiful clothes away from her,
dressed her in an old gray smock,
and gave her wooden shoes.
"Just look at the proud princess!
How decked out she is!"
they shouted and laughed as they led her into the kitchen.
There she had to do hard work from morning until evening,
get up before daybreak, carry water, make the fires, cook, and wash.
Besides this, the sisters did everything imaginable to hurt her.
 
 
 
They made fun of her,
scattered peas and lentils into the ashes for her,
so that she had to sit and pick them out again.
In the evening when she had worked herself weary,
there was no bed for her.
Instead she had to sleep by the hearth in the ashes.
And because she always looked dusty and dirty,
they called her Cinderella.
 
 
 
One day it happened that the father was going to the fair,
and he asked his two stepdaughters what he should bring back for them.
"Beautiful dresses," said the one.
"Pearls and jewels," said the other.
"And you, Cinderella," he said, "what do you want?"
"Father, break off for me the first twig that brushes against your hat on your way home."
So he bought beautiful dresses, pearls, and jewels for his two stepdaughters. On his way home, as he was riding through a green thicket,
a hazel twig brushed against him and knocked off his hat.
 
 
 
Then he broke off the twig and took it with him.
Arriving home, he gave his stepdaughters the things that they had asked for,
and he gave Cinderella the twig from the hazel bush.
Cinderella thanked him, went to her mother's grave,
and planted the branch on it,
and she wept so much that her tears fell upon it and watered it.
It grew and became a beautiful tree.
Cinderella went to this tree three times every day,
and beneath it she wept and prayed.
