“Now fetch the mouse-trap from the shelf – there are six mice inside;”
She changed them to six prancing steeds, all harnessed side by side.
“Now fetch the rat-trap,” and there was therein a large black rat,
So he was made a coachman, with silk stockings and cocked hat.
Six lizards happening to be there, all ready to the hand,
Were changed to powdered footmen, staff and bouquet all so grand.
“Now, Cinderella, here’s your coach to take you to the ball.”
“Not as I am,” she cried; “like this I cannot go at all.”

Lady Winter clothed in ermine
On the North Wind gallops in,
Over crystal bridges bright,
Over carpets snowy white.
See the North Wind snorting, prancing,
Scare the leaves that, romping, dancing,
Cease their merriment and play
And hurrying, scurrying, run away.
