The fairy of the woods (Hungarian tale).
Once upon a time there was a young girl who lived alone with her mother in a poor farm. •She had only two goats, and the little girl brought them to a clearing every morning, so that they could graze there. •A piece of bread was all the little girl had to eat, and while her beasts were grazing, she had to spin flax so as not to lose time in daydreaming. •Life was very difficult but little Maria was a happy child who sang and danced on the way. •She sang all day long while she worked, and in the evening she brought her mother a spindle full of spun flax.
•One day while she was spinning and singing, a beautiful woman came out of the forest: "Do you love to dance Maria?" •she asked her.
•"I could dance all day long!"
•"Come with me and I will teach you ..." The birds of the forest then began to sing with such force that created wind in the branches ... They danced and danced and danced; but when the sun went down Maria realised that her spindle was only half full ... "Are you sick?" asked her mother.
•"I promise you to fill the spindle tomorrow ..."  •The following day, on the way, she did not dance or sing anymore.
•"Today there is no question of me accompanying this funny woman", she promised herself.
•She span all morning, but when its rays fell upon her as the sun reached its zenith, the lady appeared and wanted to invite her anew: "I cannot," replied the girl, I have too much work".
•"Do not worry about that . . ."
•And they danced and danced and danced ... At dusk Maria dissolved into tears, seeing that her spindle was no fuller advanced than the day before.
•Then the woman whispered a few words and in the wink of an eye, it was as if Maria had worked the whole day long.
•"Weave, but never swear," she said, holding out the spindle. •"Don't forget, weave, but never swear . . ."
•The next day the little girl sang and danced again on the way to the clearing with her two goats. •At midday, the woman came, the birds sang, and the wind blew the chords....  •And they danced and danced and danced . . .
•In the evening, Maria received a small wooden casket.
•"Do not look inside before you get home" ... But of course, on the way Maria opened the box and found it to be full of acorns. •Annoyed, she threw a handful onto the ground and went home.
•Her mother was waiting on the doorstep: "Where did you find that spindle from yesterday?•I wove the whole morning, but regardless of how much thread I used, the hank did not become empty! •In the end I swore and all of a sudden, the spindle disappeared. . .There is some sort of sorcery behind this!"
•Maria was then obliged to confess everything to her mother. •The dancing, the beautiful woman. . . "You have met the fairy of the woods," said her mother. •"She sometimes comes to dance with the young girls. •On the other hand, if she meets a man, she takes him to the depths of the forest and we never see him again" ... Maria showed her the box and when they opened it they saw that the remaining acorns were gold. "Fortunately you did not throw away all of them!
•The next day, the mother and the girl went to the place where Maria had thrown away the acorns. •But they discovered nothing, other than three splendid oak trees which had grown there during the night. •Those three oaks that can always be seen not far from there ... Maria never met the fairy of the woods again. •Her mother bought a new farm and the young girl continued to dance and sing throughout her days.
