    The Frog Prince-2

    The frog called after her, 'Stay, princess, and take me with you as you said,'
    But she did not stop to hear a word.
    The next day, just as the princess had sat down to dinner, she heard a strange noise - tap, tap - plash, plash - as if something was coming up the marble staircase, and soon afterwards there was a gentle knock at the door, and a little voice cried out and said:

    'Open the door, my princess dear,
    Open the door to thy true love here!
    And mind the words that thou and I said
    By the fountain cool, in the greenwood shade.'

    Then the princess ran to the door and opened it, and there she saw the frog, whom she had quite forgotten. At this sight she was sadly frightened, and shutting the door as fast as she could came back to her seat.
    The king, her father, seeing that something had frightened her, asked her what was the matter.
    'There is a nasty frog,' said she, 'at the door, that lifted my ball for me out of the spring this morning. I told him that he should live with me here, thinking that he could never get out of the spring; but there he is at the door, and he wants to come in.'
    While she was speaking the frog knocked again at the door, and said:

    'Open the door, my princess dear,
    Open the door to thy true love here!
    And mind the words that thou and I said
    By the fountain cool, in the greenwood shade.'

    Then the king said to the young princess, 'As you have given your word you must keep it; so go and let him in.'
    She did so, and the frog hopped into the room, and then straight on - tap, tap - plash, plash - from the bottom of the room to the top, till he came up close to the table where the princess sat.
    'Pray lift me upon chair,' said he to the princess, 'and let me sit next to you.'
    As soon as she had done this, the frog said, 'Put your plate nearer to me, that I may eat out of it.'
    This she did, and when he had eaten as much as he could, he said, 'Now I am tired; carry me upstairs, and put me into your bed.' And the princess, though very unwilling, took him up in her hand, and put him upon the pillow of her own bed, where he slept all night long.
