There was once on a time a little girl whose father and mother were dead, and she was so poor that she no longer had any little room to live in, or bed to sleep in, and at last she had nothing else but the clothes she was wearing and a little bit of bread in her hand which some charitable soul had given her. She was, however, good and pious. And as she was thus forsaken by all the world, she went forth into the open country, trusting in the good God.
Era odata o fetita careia ii murisera mama si tata si ea ramasese asa de saraca, incat nu mai avea nicio camaruta unde sa locuiasca, nici un pat unde sa doarma, in sfarsit, nimic altceva decat hainele de pe ea si bucatica de paine pe care unii trecatori milosi i-o dadeau din cand in cand. Ea era insa o fetita buna si credincioasa. si, cum era parasita de toata lumea, pleca, cu Dumnezeu in gand, pe camp, la voia intamplarii.
Then a poor man met her, who said: "Ah, give me something to eat, I am so hungry!" She reached him the whole of her piece of bread, and said: "May God bless it to thy use," and went onwards. Then came a child who moaned and said: "My head is so cold, give me something to cover it with." So she took off her hood and gave it to him; and when she had walked a little farther, she met another child who had no jacket and was frozen with cold. Then she gave it her own; and a little farther on one begged for a frock, and she gave away that also. At length she got into a forest and it had already become dark, and there came yet another child, and asked for a little shirt, and the good little girl thought to herself: "It is a dark night and no one sees thee, thou canst very well give thy little shirt away," and took it off, and gave away that also.
La un moment dat se intalni cu un om sarac care-i spuse: "Da-mi si mie ceva de mancare, sunt mort de foame." Ea ii dadu ultima bucatica de paine ce-o avea la ea, apoi zise: "Dumnezeu sa te binecuvinteze," si pleca mai departe. In drum intalni un copil care-i spuse: "Mi-e tare frig la cap, da-mi ceva sa ma acopar." Fetita nu statu mult pe ganduri, isi lua caciulita de pe cap si i-o dadu. Si iar aparu un copil gol-golut, tremurand de frig. ii dadu hainuta ei si pleca mai departe. Ajunse intr-o padure pe inserat; o femeie sarmana veni la ea si fetita ii dadu si camasuta pe care o mai avea, gandind: "E noapte, nu ma vede nimeni, pot sa stau si dezbracata."
And as she so stood, and had not one single thing left, suddenly some stars from heaven fell down, and they were nothing else but hard smooth pieces of money, and although she had just given her little shirt away, she had a new one which was of the very finest linen. Then she gathered together the money into this, and was rich all the days of her life.
Si, cum statea ea asa, deodata vazu deasupra capului o ploaie de stele care, cand cadeau pe pamant, se prefaceau in monezi de aur. Din cer ii cazu la picioare o tunica tesuta din fir de aur si un inel pretios. Ea imbraca tunica, isi puse inelul pe deget, apoi incepu sa adune monedele de aur; deveni, astfel, foarte bogata si trai apoi in belsug si fericire toata viata.
