The Frog-Prince

By Itellyouastory

One fine evening a young  princess put on her  bonnet and clogs, andwent out to take  a walk by  herself in  a wood; and  when she came  toa  cool spring of water, that  rose in the  midst of it, she  satherself down  to rest a  while. Now  she had  a  golden ball  in herhand, which  was  her favorite plaything; and she  was always tossingit  up into the air,  and catching it again as it  fell. After a timeshe  threw it up so high  that she missed catching it as it fell;  andthe ball bounded away, and  rolled along upon the  ground, till at  lastit  fell down into  the spring.  The princess looked into the springafter her  ball, but it was very deep,  so deep that she could not seethe bottom of it. Then she began to bewail her loss, and said, «Alas! ifI could only get my ball again, I would give all my fine clothes andjewels, and everything that I have in the world.»
