Little Tiny or Thumbelina
by Hans Christian Andersen(7)
 
 
But during the night Tiny could not sleep;
so she got out of bed
and wove a large, beautiful carpet of hay;
then she carried it to the dead bird,
and spread it over him;
with some down from the flowers
which she had found in the field-mouse's room.
It was as soft as wool,
and she spread some of it on each side  of the bird,
so that he might lie warmly in the cold earth.
"Farewell, you pretty little bird," said she,
 "farewell; thank you for your delightful singing during the summer,
 when all the trees were green,
and the warm sun shone upon us."
Then she laid her head on the bird's breast,
but she was alarmed immediately,
for  it seemed as if something inside the bird went "thump, thump."
It was the bird' s heart;
he was not really dead,
only benumbed with the cold,
and the warmth had  restored him to life.
In autumn, all the swallows fly away into warm countries, 
but if one happens to linger,
the cold seizes it,
it becomes frozen,
and falls  down as if dead;
it remains where it fell,
and the cold snow covers it.
 

Tiny trembled very much;
she was quite frightened,
for the bird was large, a great deal  larger than herself,
-she was only an inch high.
But she took courage,
 laid the wool more thickly over the poor swallow,
and then took a leaf which she had used  for her own counterpane,
and laid it over the head of the poor bird.
The next morning she again stole out to see him.
He was alive but very weak;
 he could only  open his eyes for a moment to look at Tiny,
who stood by holding a piece of decayed wood in her hand,
 for she had no other lantern.
"Thank you, pretty little maiden," said the sick swallow;
"I have been so nicely warmed,
that I shall soon regain my strength,
and be able to fly about again in the warm sunshine."
"Oh," said she, "it is cold out of doors now;
 it snows and freezes.
Stay in your  warm bed;
I will take care of you."
