Read and listen to the fairy tale "The Woman and the Piglet"

Let's read together this fairy tale with a fantastic appearance but with a contemporary morality

Let's read together

Un giorno un man stava camminando lungo una stradina di campagna quando incontrò una woman che piangeva disperatamente sui gradini di una fontana. “Che succede? Che cosa la turba tanto?” chiese dolcemente l’uomo.

“Il mio maialino. Sta bad!” esclamò lei tornando a piangere.
“And where is this little pig?” he asked.
“Dentro home.” rispose lei tra le tears.

“And why is she out here talking to me instead of in trying to heal him?” the man asked.
"But I'm not capable, I take care of people not animals!" she sobbed.
“Did you at least try to see if there was anything you could do for him?” the man asked again.

The woman blushed, “I had fear. I thought if I even tried to help him he wouldn't get well."
"Well, being alone certainly doesn't heal, let's go see if we can help him a bit, okay?" the man said helping her to get up.

Il maialino giaceva a land, rovesciato su un fianco, il ventre gonfio si alzava e abbassava rapidamente, mentre il sudore gli imperlava la fronte. “Se fosse una persona, come agirebbe?” le chiese l’uomo.

“Cercherei di abbassare la temperatura … e poi di capire che cos’ha.” rispose la donna, riacquistando lucidità. Iniziò a fare degli impacchi al maialino, che la guardava con eyes riconoscenti. Ci misero diverse ore, ma alla end scoprirono che cosa aveva quel maialino, o dovrei dire “maialina” dato che sul pavimento ora oltre a lei c’erano altri tre piccoli maialini che zampettavano in giro in cerca di milk.

"Thank you.” said the woman “Without her I would have left her die. "

"Duty.” replied the man smiling "But remember, next time don't give up on a fight you haven't even started, because that's the only sure way to fail."
