The Frog Prince
One fine evening a young princess put on her bonnet and clogs, and went out take a walk by herself in a wood : and when she came to a cool spring of water with a rose in the middle of it, she sat herself down to rest a while. Now she had a golden ball in her hand, which was her favourite plaything: and she was always tossing it up into the air, and catching it again as it fell.
After a time she threw it up so high that she missed catching it as it fell: and the ball bounded away, and rolled along on the ground until at last it fell down into the spring. The princess looked into the spring after her ball, but it was very deep, so deep that she could not see the bottom of it. She began to cry, and said. “Alas! If I could only get my bell again. I would give all my fine clothes and jawels, and everything that I have in the world.”
Whist she was speaking, a frog put its head out of water, and said, “Princess, why do you weep so bitterly ?” “Alas!” said she, “What can you do for me, you nasty frog? My golden ball has fallen into the spring.” The frog said, “I do not want you pearls, and jawels, and fine clothes; but if you will love me, and let me live with you and eat from off your golden plate, and sleep on your bed, I wil bring you your ball again.”
