Once on a time there was a King who had so many geese he was forced to have a lassie to tend them and watch them; her name was Annie, and so they called her ‘Annie the Goose-girl’. Now you must know there was a King’s son from England who went out to woo; and as he came along Ann sat herself down in his way.
‘Sitting all alone there, you little Annie?’ said the King’s son.
‘Yes’, said little Annie, ‘here I sit and put stitch to stitch and patch on patch. I’m waiting to-day for the King’s son from England.’
‘Him you mustn’t look to have’, said the Prince.
