Fata cea saraca si baba care torcea/ The old woman and the poor maiden

A fost odata ca niciodata o fata saraca. Iar fata asta ii pica cu tronc printului. Si de draga ce-i era, printul o lua de nevasta. Dar imparateasa, mama printului, voi sa o puna la incercare pe nora-sa si ii dadu multi saci cu canepa de tors. Fata, saraca, ce sa faca? cum sa toarca ea atata amar de canepa? Veni o baba batrana si zbarcita la ea si-i spuse ca-i toarce ea canepa cat ai bate din palme. Zis si facut! baba ii toarse toti sacii. In noaptea nuntii, in loc s-o gaseasca pe nevasta-sa in pat, printul o gasi pe baba cea zbarcita tolanita in cearsafurile cele pretioase. Se inspaimanta bietul ginerica nevoie mare, dar si invata o lectie buna, caci baba ii zise: "Nu-ti mai osteni biata nevasta cu atata amar de munca, ca va ajunge urata si zbarcita ca mine!". De atata spaima, printul porunci sa se arda furcile si fusele, si o tinu pe tanara printesa numa'n puf!

Once upon a time, there was a prince who fell inlove with a poor maiden. He took her in marriage, but the empress, his mother, wanted to check out her daughter-in-law and demanded her to spin many, many sacks of hemp. She couldn't spin out so much hemp, but an old woman offered her help and spun all the sacks for her. But in the wedding night, the old woman took the girl's place. The prince had a shock, but also he learnt a good lesson: "Young prince, don't put your bride to such hard work, or she'll end up like me, ugly and old". The prince put his men to burn all the spinning wheels and, from then on, he took care of his wife to never do hard works!
