CINDERELLA AND THE LITTLE GLASS SLIPPER.I. VII. XIII.IN merrie England, once there dwelt Now, so it fell, the King's own son Poor Cinderelle she nods a "Yes !"A maiden meek, and young, and fair; Got up, and, by the King's right hand, Her cloak the fairie round her furled;Her eyes were blue as flowers o' lint, Vowed there should be a royal ball, "Bring me a pumpkin !" One was brought,Her cheeks the roses' bonniest tint, Whereto the Queen invited all And scooped and made as quick as thought,And streamed, in golden waves,her hair The great and lovely of the land. The grandest coach in all the world !II. VIII. XIV.But she who smoothed that sunniest gold And all to win that Prince's love, Six lusty mice squeaked in the trap-With loving hand-her mother dear !- What gold was spent for grand array; The fairie touched them with her wand;Had long within her grave been laid, And all to win a smile from him, When, lo! six horses, white as milk,And other hands, from this sweet maid, These sisters, cruel, false, and grim, Pranc'd in that coach, with manes like silk,Had wrung full many a bitter tear But talked of gew-gaws night and day. And graith worth fifty ploughs of land.III. IX. XV.A widowed dame, with daughters twain, And ayetheywrangled,sneered, &snarjed- But where's the coachman ? never mind.Had father wed-a woesome three " I'll wear, quoth one, my velvet gown, A whiskered rat, both large and grim,The maids were old, and grim, and vain, Be-dight with coils of English lace"- The fairie struck, when up he roseAnd, to this lass, like granite grain, The other grunts with puckered face: A coachman, whiskered to the nose-Because so young and fair was she. " The ugliest garb in all the town!" Who meekly touched his beaver's rim.IV. X. XVI.They stowed her 'yond the pots and pans, " For me, I'll don my flowered brocade,- Six lizards, next, are caught and changedTo smear with grime her wondrous bloom, My new tiara, diamond-dight; To footmen four and pages twain--Since young and fair, must hide she there, I'm sure thou'st nothing half so fine ;- Arrayed in garb of richest sheen,-O, woe's me for so foul a lair- Thy taste-aha !-compared wi' mine, But, ah, those rags can mother meanThe cinders all her sleeping room! Thou'lt be, forsooth, a bonnie sight!" For scullion girl sogrand a train ?V. XI. XVII.Till that sweet name she knew so well, Here Cinderella soothed and soothed, Not so! From 'neath the fairie's cloak,When from the lips, long waned, it came, And kept them from each other's ears; Behold, two small glass slippers drawn 1Was by the maid herself forgot, Soon showed what each befitted best, And when that maid put on the first,For CINDERELLA-vow, but that Till for the ball the twain she drest, O'er cheek and brow, a radiance burst-Was heard as this sweet damsel's name And, when they left, sat down in tears A fresher beauty seemed to dawn !VI. XII. XVIII.And aye their draggled drabs she washed; Her god-mama, a kind old dame, That second slipper, from her rags,And aye her heart they stung and stung, A mightie fairie, eke, was she, A moment draws her tearful gaze,With scoff and sneer, and faces wry, With star-tipt wand, her entry made, 'Tis on, and, there, behold her stand,Till e'en their dog must sit them by, And"Whereforegreet'stthou,love?"shesaid- The richest robed in all the land,-And at her grin or loll his tongue! "Thou'dst like, mayhap, the ball to see?" With gold and diamonds, all a-blaze!Marcus Ward 6 Co.'s Royal Illuminated Legends.]

CINDERELLA AND THE LITTLE GLASS SLIPPER.-continueti.XIX. XXV. XXXI." Those slippers, love," the fairie spake, And aye she smiled, and aye they talked, Lo! how they stare! The sisters grim," Be careful that thou dost retain ; Of her, the flow'r that none could name, With hate and wonder, statues stand;For reckless foot, or reckless hand, Whose beauty dazed, where'er it shone,- Such fit-so free-oh, ne'er there was !Displacing one, this potent wand And sat, and soothed the twain alone !- Its fellow from her pouch she draws,Could not avert some instant pain Next night beholds the ball the same And, smiling, holds it up on hand !XX. XXVI. XXXII." And, more, sweet love," that fairie said, And Cinderella, bright as erst, But lo! those magic slippers on,"Take heed to this-thy star's decree,- The Prince's heart hath stol'n away, She stands transformed before them all;If thou the hour of twelve but pass, As he hath hers And so they sat Instead of dingy rags, behold,Thou'lt be, at once, the cinder lass, So long and loving, she forgot A blaze of diamonds, silk and gold-"Fore all that court's high companie !" Till twelve had chimed. Alack-a-day! The very Princess of the Ball!XXI. XXVII. XXXIII.Fat coachie mounts his seat before; She flees, but, ah she's bright no more! Ah, me! what joy spread o'er the Court,The footmen stand a pace behind ; Nor coach hath she, nor retinue; I dare not e'en attempt to tell;The pages lift the ladye's train; The Prince pursues till, drops the lass The King and Queen transported were;But flash, comes star-tip't wand agair-- One precious slipper-all of glass !- The Prince-but, love so much can bear!--Then ball-ward flee they like the wind "Oh, for a foot to fit that shoe !" Was almost ill, he felt so well!XXII. XXVIII. XXXIV.O, what a night for Cinderelle; He stowed the slipper next his heart, Soon King, and Queen, and nobles all,"No Princess there so grand as she! And-bye our Ladye-vowed, whoe'er Surround the Priest, with many more,The hearts of all she holds in thrall, The same would fit, however mean, Where blushing Cinderella kneelsThe light and wonder of that ball, Should share his throne, and be his queen.- And gives the Prince the hand that sealsAnd none to say who she might be! Alack, his death seemed very near! His bond of bliss till time be o'er!XXIII. XXIX. XXXV.The Prince was wild, both head and heart; His heralds searched, through many a mile, And long and happy was the reignHe could not touch another's hand; And, lastly,where this flow'r did bloom; Of this young Prince and Princess fair;Sooth, only where she shone, could see! The twain grim sisters tried the shoe, For, when upon the throne they sat,The King and Queen bestraught as he. But, woe and woe it would not do- Our Cinderella ne'er forgotThe grim old sisters, too, looked bland. That slipper was too scant of room 'Twas mostly meekness placed her there.XXIV. XXX. XXXVI.But, hark! The chime A quarter off!- Then out bespoke the cinder lass, And, for the sisters, grim and vain,Till twelve, for worlds she would not stay. A tearful, timid thing was she:- She soothed the hate they to her bore,Soon god-mama her pet hath kiss'd- " Sirs, by your leave, I'd try it on !"- With noble husbands from that CourtThe sisters grim, but little wist The grinning sisters cried-" Begone !" She ruled so long, and in such sort,Yon Princess scoured their pans next day. "Nay!" spake the heralds, "we shall see!" As flow'rs her memory England o'er!Marcus Ward & Co.'s Royal Illuminated Legends.]
