Paper Dancer

I do pirouettes on the shelf in front of a paper castle while little boys play with toy soldiers on the floor. The soldiers don’t interest me, but the one who lies before me, who is missing a leg, why, he positively melts my heart!

The Paper Dancer in The Steadfast Tin Soldier, Hans Christian Andersen
