Then the Swallow flew back to the Happy Prince. He passed over the Ghetto. At last he came to the poor house and looked in. He passed by the cathedral tower. They never hit me. He is trying to finish a play for the Director of the Theatre. There is no fire in the grate. His hair is brown and crisp. The river- horse couches there among the bulrushes.
All night long he watches the stars.
Pluck out one of them and take it to him. They have eyes like green beryls. It was easy enough to get in. He will sell it to the jeweller.
When the moon rose he flew back to the Happy Prince. I have no ruby now. He is lean- ing over a desk covered with papers. He visited all the public monu- ments. They are made of rare sapphires. Wherever he went the Sparrows chirruped. I must leave you.

Pluck out my other eye. My companions are building a nest in the Temple of Baalbec. Now I can finish my play. The next day the Swallow flew down to the harbour. He swooped past the match-girl. He sat on the mast of a large vessel and watched the sailors hauling big chests out of the hold with ropes.
In Egypt the sun is warm on the green palm- trees. Through this he darted. You would be quite blind then. The ruby shall be redder than a red rose. The young man had his head buried in his hands. Her father will beat her if she does not bring home some money. She has let her matches fall in the gutter.
Dear Prince. She has no shoes or stockings. He told him of the red ibises. Then the Swallow came back to the Prince. Leaf after leaf of the 9. Then he flew back and told the Prince what he had seen. He flew into dark lanes. There is no Mystery so great as Misery. Fly over my city. Early the next morning the Mayor was walking in the square below in company with the Town Councillors. Then the snow came. The fact is that the leaden heart had snapped right in two.
The streets looked as if they were made of silver. It certainly was a dreadfully hard frost. But at last he knew that he was going to die. Death is the brother of Sleep.
As they passed the column he looked up at the statue: The poor little Swallow grew colder and colder. At that moment a curious crack sounded inside the statue. We must throw it away. When I last heard of them they were quarrelling still.
So they pulled down the statue of the Happy Prince. Then they melted the statue in a furnace. It may not be pur- chased of the merchants. But there is no red rose in my garden. But with me she will not dance. I shall hold her in my arms. His hair is dark as the hyacinth-blossom. It is more precious than emeralds. If I bring her a red rose. If I bring her a red rose she will dance with me till dawn.
She will dance so lightly that her feet will not touch the floor. Surely Love is a wonderful thing. I have read all that the wise men have written. Pearls and pomegranates cannot buy it. She will have no heed of me. She passed through the grove like a shadow. In the centre of the grass-plot was standing a beautiful Rose- tree.
But go to my brother who grows round the old sun-dial. Suddenly she spread her brown wings for flight. Yet Love is better than Life. But the winter has chilled my veins.
All night long you must sing to me. The young Student was still lying on the grass. Sweet is the scent of the hawthorn. Flame-coloured are his wings. All that I ask of you in re- turn is that you will be a true lover. I will build it out of music by moonlight.
She swept over the garden like a shadow. You must sing to me with your breast against a thorn. It is pleasant to sit in the green wood. Is there no way by which I can get it? And when the Moon shone in the heavens the Nightingale flew to the Rose-tree. She sang first of the birth of love in the heart of a boy and a girl.

She thinks merely of music. But the Oak-tree understood. As the shadow of a rose in a mirror of sil- ver. What a pity it is that they do not mean anything. I am afraid not. And on the top-most spray of the Rose-tree there blos- somed a marvellous rose. All night long she sang. She would not sacrifice herself for others.
His lips are sweet as honey. All night long she sang with her breast against the thorn. When she had finished her song the Student got up. Pale was it. But the Tree cried to the Nightingale to press closer against the thorn. I have never seen any rose like it in all my life. And the marvellous rose became crimson. The white Moon heard it. Crimson was the girdle of petals. The red rose heard it. But the thorn had not yet reached her heart.
And at noon the Student opened his window and looked out. Echo bore it to her purple cavern in the hills. Then she gave one last burst of music. And the Tree cried to the Nightingale to press closer against the thorn.
Fainter and fainter grew her song. And a delicate flush of pink came into the leaves of the rose. It is It floated through the reeds of the river. Only a Student.
The daughter of the Professor was sitting in the doorway winding blue silk on a reel. I shall go back to Philosophy and study Metaphysics. Then he put on his hat. You will wear it to-night next your heart. They tried to play on the road. Here and there over the grass stood beautiful flowers like stars. Once a beautiful flower put its head out from the grass. It was a large lovely garden. Then the Spring came.
Only in the garden of the Selfish Giant it was still winter. After the seven years were over he had said all that he had to say.

He had been to visit his friend the Cornish ogre. One day the Giant came back. The poor children had now nowhere to play. The birds did not care to sing in it as there were no children. The birds sat on the trees and sang so sweetly that the children used to stop their games in order to listen to them.
When he arrived he saw the children playing in the garden. They used to wander round the high wall when their lessons were over. He was dressed in grey. So it was always Winter there. In every tree that he could see there was a little child. The birds were flying about and twittering with delight. Then they invited the North Wind to stay with them. He was wrapped in furs. One morning the Giant was lying awake in bed when he heard some lovely music.
Through a little hole in the wall the children had crept in. What did he see? He saw a most wonderful sight. Every day for three hours he rattled on the roof of the castle till he broke most of the slates. The only people who were pleased were the Snow and the Frost. And the trees were so glad to have the chil- dren back again that they had covered themselves with blos- soms.
Then the Hail stopped dancing over his head. It was really only a little linnet singing outside his window. The Autumn gave golden fruit to every garden. It was the farthest corner of the garden.
It was a lovely scene. All day long they played. And the Giant stole up behind him and took him gently in his hand. He was so small that he could not reach up to the branches of the tree.

He was very much admired indeed. One night there flew over the city a little Swallow. His friends had gone away to Egypt six weeks before, but he had stayed behind, for he was in love with the most beautiful Reed.
