The Pea Speaks Beneath the moon, so lush and full A fevered yearning lay. A prince alone, a palace grand Seeking his heart's mate. A princess bride to rule with him, welcome arms at battles end. Tender heart and face so sweet, a bride, a mate and friend
Thumblina Maternal longing spun with magic Tiniest cherub, empty arms filled Petal-wrapped slumber Sun-drenched days Cherished child, see how she grows No bigger than a thumb
The Spider and the Fly Please come into my parlor, said the spider to the fly Pretty teasing words tumbling from the sky
Rumpy(Rumpelstiltskin) Straw to gold the story told An impish fiend and a trembling maiden Spinning riches, spinning glory
The Well Speaks(Frau Holle) Ancient stones covered with lichen cool sweet water fills my walls
Little Suck-a-Thumb(Burlesque) A mother's love has many faces Like a rainbow or a peacock's feathers Textures and tastes, sweet and bitter Teaching. Guiding. Loving care.
