格林童话故事:森林里的小屋

  A poor wood-cutter lived with his wife and three daughters in

  a little hut on the edge of a lonely forest. One morning as he

  was about to go to his work, he said to his wife, "Let my dinner

  be brought into the forest to me by my eldest daughter, or I shall

  never get my work done, and in order that she may not miss her

  way," he added, "I will take a bag of millet with me and strew

  the seeds on the path." When, therefore, the sun was just above

  the center of the forest, the girl set out on her way with a bowl of

  soup, but the field-sparrows, and wood-sparrows, larks and finches,

  blackbirds and siskins had picked up the millet long before, and the

  girl could not find the track. Then trusting to chance, she went on

  and on, until the sun sank and night began to fall. The trees rustled

  in the darkness, the owls hooted, and she began to be afraid. Then

  in the distance she perceived a light which glimmered between the

  trees. "There ought to be some people living there, who can take

  me in for the night," thought she, and went up to the light. It was

  not long before she came to a house the windows of which were all

  lighted up. She knocked, and a rough voice from inside cried, "Come

  in." The girl stepped into the dark entrance, and knocked at the door

  of the room. "Just come in," cried the voice, and when she opened the

  door, an old gray-haired man was sitting at the table, supporting his face

  with both hands, and his white beard fell down over the table almost

  as far as the ground. By the stove lay three animals, a hen, a cock, and

  a brindled cow. The girl told her story to the old man, and begged for

  shelter for the night. The man said,

  "Pretty little hen,

  Pretty little cock,

  And pretty brindled cow,

  What say ye to that?"

  "Duks," answered the animals, and that must have meant, "We are

  willing," for the old man said, "Here you shall have shelter and food,

  go to the fire, and cook us our supper." The girl found in the kitchen

  abundance of everything, and cooked a good supper, but had no thought

  of the animals. She carried the full dishes to the table, seated herself by

  the gray-haired man, ate and satisfied her hunger. When she had had

  enough, she said, "But now I am tired, where is there a bed in which I

  can lie down, and sleep?" The animals replied,

  "Thou hast eaten with him,

  Thou hast drunk with him,

  Thou hast had no thought for us,

  So find out for thyself where thou canst pass the night."

  Then said the old man, "Just go upstairs, and thou wilt find a

  room with two beds, shake them up, and put white linen on them,

  and then I, too, will come and lie down to sleep." The girl went

  up, and when she had shaken the beds and put clean sheets on,

  she lay down in one of them without waiting any longer for the

  old man. After some time, however, the gray-haired man came,

  took his candle, looked at the girl and shook his head. When he

  saw that she had fallen into a sound sleep, he opened a trap-door,

  and let her down into the cellar.

  Late at night the wood-cutter came home, and reproached his

  wife for leaving him to hunger all day. "It is not my fault," she

  replied, "the girl went out with your dinner, and must have lost

  herself, but she is sure to come back to-morrow." The wood-cutter,

  however, arose before dawn to go into the forest, and requested

  that the second daughter should take him his dinner that day. "I

  will take a bag with lentils," said he; "the seeds are larger than millet,

  the girl will see them better, and can't lose her way." At dinner-time,

  therefore, the girl took out the food, but the lentils had disappeared.

  The birds of the forest had picked them up as they had done the day

  before, and had left none. The girl wandered about in the forest

  until night, and then she too reached the house of the old man,

  was told to go in, and begged for food and a bed. The man with

  the white beard again asked the animals,

  "Pretty little hen,

  Pretty little cock,

  And pretty brindled cow,

  What say ye to that?"

  The animals again replied "Duks," and everything happened just

  as it had happened the day before. The girl cooked a good meal,

  ate and drank with the old man, and did not concern herself about

  the animals, and when she inquired about her bed they answered,

  "Thou hast eaten with him,

  Thou hast drunk with him,

  Thou hast had no thought for us,

  To find out for thyself where thou canst pass the night."

  When she was asleep the old man came, looked at her, shook his

  head, and let her down into the cellar.

  On the third morning the wood-cutter said to his wife, "Send our

  youngest child out with my dinner to-day, she has always been good

  and obedient, and will stay in the right path, and not run about after

  every wild humble-bee, as her sisters did." The mother did not

  want to do it, and said, "Am I to lose my dearest child, as well?"

  "Have no fear,' he replied, "the girl will not go astray; she is too

  prudent and sensible; besides I will take some peas with me, and

  strew them about. They are still larger than lentils, and will show

  her the way." But when the girl went out with her basket on her

  arm, the wood-pigeons had already got all the peas in their crops,

  and she did not know which way she was to turn. She was full

  of sorrow and never ceased to think how hungry her father would

  be, and how her good mother would grieve, if she did not go home.

  At length when it grew dark, she saw the light and came to the house

  in the forest. She begged quite prettily to be allowed to spend the night

  there, and the man with the white beard once more asked his animals,
