The wilful child

PORTUGUÊS

O menino teimoso


Once upon a time there was a child who was willful, and would not dowh at her mother wished. For this reason God had no pleasure in her, and let her become ill, and no doctor could do her any good, and in a short time she lay on her death-bed. When she had been lowered into her grave, and the earth was spread over her, all at once her arm came out again, and stretched upwards, and when they had put it in and spread fresh earth over it, it was all to no purpose, for the arm always came out again. Then the mother herself was obliged to go to the grave, and strike the arm with a rod, and when she had done that, it was drawn in, and then at last the child had rest beneath the ground.
Houve, uma vez, um menino muito teimoso, que nunca fazia o que lhe mandava a mãe. Por conseguinte, o bom Deus andava descontente com ele e, certo dia, fê-lo adoecer.
Chamaram os médicos, mas nenhum conseguiu salvá-lo e, dentro de poucos dias, ele foi colocado no leito de morte.
Depois que o enterraram e cobriram a campa de terra, de repente surgiu para fora da campa um bracinho erguido para o alto. Tomaram a colocá-lo debaixo da terra, cobrindo-o melhor, mas em vão; o bracinho insistia em sair para fora.
Então, a mãe teve de ir à campa e com uma varinha bater no bracinho; só assim o bracinho retirou-se e o menino descansou em paz em baixo da terra.
