Aesop's Fables - Online Collection - 656+ fables - Aesop's Fables - 127 Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen. Hans Christian Andersen: The Wild Swans. By AR away in the land to which the swallows fly when it is winter, dwelt a king who had eleven sons, and one daughter, named Eliza.
The eleven brothers were princes, and each went to school with a star on his breast, and a sword by his side. They wrote with diamond pencils on gold slates, and learnt their lessons so quickly and read so easily that every one might know they were princes. Their sister Eliza sat on a little stool of plate-glass, and had a book full of pictures, which had cost as much as half a kingdom. Oh, these children were indeed happy, but it was not to remain so always. “Go out into the world and get your own living,” said the queen.

Most terribly cold it was; it snowed, and was nearly quite dark, and evening-- the last evening of the year.
In this cold and darkness there went along the street a poor little girl, bareheaded, and with naked feet. When she left home she had slippers on, it is true; but what was the good of that? They were very large slippers, which her mother had hitherto worn; so large were they; and the poor little thing lost them as she scuffled away across the street, because of two carriages that rolled by dreadfully fast. One slipper was nowhere to be found; the other had been laid hold of by an urchin, and off he ran with it; he thought it would do capitally for a cradle when he some day or other should have children himself.
So the little maiden walked on with her tiny naked feet, that were quite red and blue from cold. She crept along trembling with cold and hunger--a very picture of sorrow, the poor little thing! Her little hands were almost numbed with cold. "Someone is just dead! " Mio, min Mio med åk 6 & 5. Vi har nu, inom ramen för vårt tema om sagor, börjat läsa Mio, min Mio. Myths and Legends from E2BN.
