Excerpt from The Dwarf's Spectacles and Other Fairy Tales: Told by Max Nordau to His Maxa From the Fourth to Her Seventh Birthday The rose-bush in the garden is beautiful. But the naughty thorns which often pricked your fingers till they bled, when you wanted to pick a bud! The horrid rose - bush! I suppose you said, and perhaps even struck at it with a stick. Don't say that, little girl. When you know why the rose - bush is covered With thorns from top to bottom, you will see that it is not horrid, but very good. DO you remember how the nightingale sung during the May nights, when the moon was Shining brightly, and the roses were so sweet, and the little glow-worms glittered in the grass? It sounded like a loud wail, often almost like sobbing, SO that you felt very sorrow ful, and asked us, What is the matter With the little nightingale, that She sings SO mournfully? N OW I will tell you, as the evening will be long and we have plenty of time. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
