Especially for you, The Princess and her Cloak. enjoy the tale at Seligor's Castle. xxx Seligor.

The Princess



Down in the woods on summer evenings,
When trees and brackens grow dark and blue,
And things go rustling among the shadows,
It makes me think of a tale I knew :

Long, long ago there was once a Princess, the loveliest Princess in the land, who vowed a vow         she would not get married for all the King's and the Queen's command.

Though princes rode on their prancing horses, and kings drove up in their robes of state, the             haughty Princess would never see them, and turned them all from the palace gate.

At last her father grew very angry and said he would send her far away, unless she made up her         mind to marry, and chose a husband without delay.
The King looked dreadfully fierce and stately standing before her by his throne, and so she                promised, if first he made her a mantle of every fur that's known.
The hunters went through the kingdom hunting, the furriers sorted their finest fur -
        Ermine, sable, and mink and otter, bearskin and deerskin to use for her.
They took chinchilla, and mole, and possum, and fluffy rabbit, and smooth brown rat, sealskin,          tiger-skin, monkey, leopard, calf, and pony, and dog, and cat.
Badger and beaver, and wolf and weasel, and ferret and mouse, and fox and stoat ; and every               beast you could ever think of gave her a piece of gave her a piece of its cosy coat.
At last the mantle was sown and finished, and what do you think the Princess did ? She put it             on, and that very evening she ran away to the woods and hid !
A prince from a distant country found her lying asleep in a hollow tree, and thought, when he           saw the furry bundle : what can this odd  looking creature be !

The Prince

He took his spear and was going
to kill it, when just at that moment the Princess woke, and the        loveliest face he had ever dreamed of laughed at him out of the furry cloak.

She liked the Princ
e, and he liked the Princess, and took her back to the Castle hall, he asked the King for her hand in marriage, and so they married, and that was all.

 But often I think in the woods at twilight,
When little soft rustlings come and go,
It might be rabbits, it might be fairies ;
                    It might be a princess - you never know !

The beautiful picture of the Princess is from Google Images
and it is from the blue_princess_by_qianyu.jpg

The blue Prince has no name to refer to, but is on the same Images
