The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen

She drew one out.


as she held her hands over it

The little girl had already stretched out her feet to warm them too

Most terribly cold it was

It snowed

and was nearly quite dark

and evening

In this cold and darkness there went along the street a poor little girl

So the little maiden walked on with her tiny naked feet

that were quite red and blue from cold

She carried a quantity of matches in an old apron

She crept along trembling with cold and hunger

From all the windows the candles were gleaming

In a corner formed by two houses, she seated herself down

and cowered together

she grew colder and colder

but to go home she did not venture

and at home it was cold too

Her little hands were almost numbed with cold

She rubbed another against the wall

it burned brightly

and where the light fell on the wall, there the wall became transparent like a veil

when the match went out and nothing but the thick, cold, damp wall was left behind

She lighted another match.

Now there she was sitting under the most magnificent Christmas tree

The little maiden stretched out her hands towards them when

She drew another match against the wall

it was again light

and in the lustre there stood the old grandmother

"Grandmother!" cried the little one. "Oh, take me with you! You go away when the match burns out; you vanish like the warm stove, like the delicious roast goose, and like the magnificent Christmas tree!"

But in the corner, at the cold hour of dawn, sat the poor girl

with rosy cheeks

and with a smiling mouth

leaning against the wall

frozen to death on the last evening of the old year
