GLADLY HE FOUND HER IN THIS HUMBLE MAIDEN,WHOSE WORTH RELUCTANTLY HER SISTERS OWN;WHILE THE PRINCE, SMILING, SAID, "MEEK, LOWLY PATIENCEIS A RARE VIRTUE TO ADORN A THRONE."THE FAIRY GOD-MOTHER ONCE MORE APPEARING,GAVE A RICH DOWRY TO THE CHOSEN BRIDE;A SPLENDID WEDDING FOLLOWED; BOTH THE SOV'REIGNSGAZED ON THE YOUTHFUL PAIR WITH HEARTFELT PRIDE.AND "THEY LIVED HAPPILY FOR EVER AFTER,"SO SAYS THE STORY; AND I THINK 'TWAS TRUE;FOR THEY WERE GOOD AND KIND TO ALL THEIR PEOPLE,AND NO MEAN SELFISH FEELINGS EITHER KNEW.THE WORLD IS OLDER NOW; THERE ARE NO FAIRIESLURKING 'MIDST BLUEBELLS IN THE GOOD GREEN WOOD;BUT STILL WE LOVE THE TALE OF CINDERELLA,AND LEARN FROM HER "'TIS WISEST TO BE GOOD."
