Little Tiny or Thumbelina
by Hans Christian Andersen(9)
 
Tiny had to turn the spindle,
and the field-mouse hired four spiders,
who were to weave day and night.
Every evening the mole visited her,
and was continually speaking of the time when the summer would be over.
Then he would keep his wedding-day with Tiny;
but now the heat of the sun was so great
that it burned the earth,
and made it quite hard, like a stone.
As soon as the summer was over,
the wedding should take place.
 

But Tiny was not at all pleased;
for she did not like  the tiresome mole.
 Every morning when the sun rose,
 and every evening when it went down,
she would creep out at the door,
and as the wind blew aside the ears of  corn,
so that she could see the blue sky,
she thought how beautiful and bright  it seemed out there,
and wished so much to see her dear swallow again.
But he never returned;
for by this time he had flown far away into the lovely green forest.
When autumn arrived,
Tiny had her outfit quite ready;
and the field-mouse said to her,
 "In four weeks the wedding must take place."
 
 
Then Tiny wept,
and said she would not marry the disagreeable mole.
"Nonsense," replied the field-mouse.
"Now don't be obstinate,
 or I shall bite you with my white teeth.
 He is a very handsome mole;
the queen herself does not wear more beautiful velvets and furs.
 His kitchen and cellars are quite full.
You  ought to be very thankful for such good fortune."
 

So the wedding-day was fixed,
 on which the mole was to fetch Tiny away to live with him,
deep under the earth, and never again to see the warm sun,
 because he did not like it.
 The poor child was very unhappy at the thought of saying farewell to the beautiful sun,
and as the field-mouse had given her permission to stand  at the door,
she went to look at it once more.
