dove-1861791_640
Cinderella’s mother gave her precious blessings on her death-bed which were never forgotten
Always remain good and kind and god will protect you
She visits her mother’s grave every day to grieve and some years goes by
Now the gentleman that was supposed to be her father remarries

Always remain good and kind and god will protect you
Cinderella remember her mother’s teaching and remained blessed
Now the gentleman that was supposed to be her father remarries
Those two mean step-sisters banish her to the kitchen

Cinderella remember her mother’s teaching and remained blessed
She had nothing to wear but rags they called her ash fool
Those two mean step-sisters banish her to the kitchen
With no place to sleep but by the ashes to keep her warm

She had nothing to wear but rags they called her ash fool
Despite all this, she remained good and kind as her mother told her
with no place to sleep but by the ashes to keep her warm
She visited her mother’s grave often crying and praying

Despite all this, she remained good and kind as her mother told her
Praying to god with hope her circumstances would improve
She visited her mother’s grave often crying and praying
Still watering the flowers she planted with her tears

Praying to god with hope her circumstances would improve
The gentleman went to town, cinderella wanted was the first twig that knocked his hat off
Still watering the flowers she planted with her tears
He brought home beautiful dresses and diamonds for her step sisters

The gentleman went to town cinderella wanted was the first twig that knocked his hat off
That twig was a hazel twig which would bring good luck to her as it grew
He brought home beautiful dresses and diamonds for her step sisters
Planting the twig over her mother’s grave she kept it watered with tears over the years

That twig was a hazel twig which would bring good luck to her as it grew
She prayed under that beautiful hazel tree three times a day
Planting the twig over her mother’s grave she kept it watered with tears over the years
A white dove came and granted her wishes by throwing down to her what she wished for

She prayed under that beautiful hazel tree three times a day
She visits her mother’s grave every day to grieve and some years goes by
A white dove came and granted her wishes by throwing down to her what she wished for.
Cinderella’s mother gave her precious blessings on her death-bed which were never forgotten.

I would like to thank Theresa and Anne,  for the invitation to write my own “Cinderella” story Part 2 to follow.
