The Selkie's Song|The Opal Dream Cave



Once upon a time, there was a very old woman who lived with her daughter and a flock of geese in a lovely cottage among the mountains. The cottage neighboured a large forest, and every morning the old woman took her crutch and hobbled into it. There, however, the dame was quite active — more so than anyone would have thought possible, considering her age — and collected grass for her geese, picking all the wild fruit she could reach and carrying everything home upon her back. Anyone would have thought that the heavy load would have weighed her to the ground, but she always brought it safely home. The geese, sensing her return, would run to meet her, flapping their wings excitedly and stretching out their necks, cackling all the while.— The Goose-Girl At The Well, by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm.Artwork: The Goose-Girl’s Cottage, by Robert Sauber.
