The Happy Prince.

Above the city, on a tall pillar, stood a statue of the Happy Prince.

His entire body was covered with thin leaves of fine gold, his eyes were studded with two bright sapphires, and a large red ruby gleamed on the hilt of his sword.

He was really appreciated. “She’s as handsome as Weathercock,” remarked one of the councillors, who wanted to gain a reputation for artistic interest; “Only not so useful,”

He added, fearing that people might consider him impractical, which he really was not.

“Why can’t you be like the Happy Prince?” asked a wise mother of her little boy who was crying to the moon. “The happy prince would never dream of crying over anything.”

“I’m glad there is someone in the world who is quite happy,” muttered a dejected man looking at the wonderful statue.

“He looks just like an angel,” said the children of charity as they came out of the cathedral in their bright red cloaks and their clean white pinafores.

“how do you know?” “You’ve never seen anything like this,” said the mathematical master. “Ah! But we have, in our dreams,”

replied the children; And the mathematics master frowned and looked very serious, because he did not approve of dreaming of children.

One night a little swallow flew over the city. His friends had gone to Egypt six weeks earlier, but he had stayed there because he was in love with the most beautiful reed.

He met her in early spring when she was flying down the river following a large yellow moth, and was so attracted by her slender waist that he stopped to talk to her.

“Should I love you?” said Swallow, who liked to get to the point right away, and Reed bowed to him.

So he kept flying around it, touching the water with his wings and making silver waves. This was her courtship, and it lasted the whole summer.

“It is a ridiculous attachment,” tweeted the other swallows, “he has no money, and many relations; and indeed the river was full of reeds.

Then when autumn came, they all flew away. After their departure he felt lonely and started getting bored of his lady-love.

“She has no conversation,” he said, “and I fear she is a flirtatious girl, for she is always playing with the wind.”

He gazes at the stars all night long, and when the morning star shines, he shouts once with joy, and then falls silent.

In the afternoon the yellow lions come to the water’s edge to drink water.

His eyes are like green berries, and his roar is louder than the roar of cataracts.”

“Swallow, swallow, little swallow,” said the prince, “far away on the other side of the town I see a young man dressed in a garage.

He is leaning on a table covered with papers, and beside him in a glass is a bunch of wilted purple flowers.

Her hair is brown and crisp, and her lips are as red as a pomegranate, and she has big and dreamy eyes.

He is trying to finish a play for the theatre’s director, but he is too cold to write any more.

There is no fire in the furnace and hunger has made him unconscious.

“I’ll wait one more night with you,” said the Swallow, who had a really good heart. “Shall I get another ruby for her?”
