A gentleman who chanc'd to lose his wife,
One daughter had, and lov'd her as his
life;
Thinking it might their comfort much.

Married a widow, who destroy'd his ueace..
 She, too, had daughters, both swell'd up
with pride,
Who hatred to his child could never hide.
Sore griev'd to find his fondest  hopes
betray'd,
He sicken'd, died, and in his grave was
laid.
Left to their mercy, she was doom'd to bear
The roughest treatment, with the coarsest
fare.

Thinking on parents who were now no
more,
She heard a woman knocking at the door
Who prov'd a Fairy, chronicles relate,
Who interest took in Cinderella's fate.
Bent nearly double, she seem'd old and
weak,
And   said,   c A little warmth I come to
seek;
 Dear,  dry your tears, your fortune I'll
advance,
This night at court you'll with your sisters
dance.
Run, fetch a pumpkin—that a coach I'll

With heart quite light, to court she went
her way—

The  clock  struck twelve—-she left the
joyous throng,
But dropp'd her slipper as she flew along.
Next day a herald was sent round to find
Whose'foot wouldfit the slipper left behind.
'Twasallinvain thatboth their sisters tried
Then let me try,' poor Cinderella cried.

Her foot slipp'd in with ease—the girls
looked blue,
When from her pocket she its fellow drew.
Soon this poor orphan shone the prince's
bride,—
A   queen   she   reign'd,   and   was   her
country's pride.
