Diamonds and Toads

Diamonds and gold coins may 
Work some wonders in their way; 
But a gentle word is worth 
More than all the gems on earth.

Not Diamonds and Pearls, or Diamonds and Rust.This is the  story of two girls. The first girl is granted a gift by a good fairy, for kindly giving an old lady some water. She returns home to her wicked mother and, when she speaks, jewels and roses fall from her lips. The sulky and rude girl is punished by the fairy – and when she speaks, then frogs jump out of her mouth.

One of them marries the handsome prince…..

Though — when otherwise inclined — 
It’s a trouble to be kind, 
Often it will bring you good 
When you least believed it could.
