An extract from The Little Match Girl:
The snowflakes fell on her long blonde hair, which hung down in curls. Lights gleamed in every window, and there came to her the delicious smell of roast goose, for it was New Year's Eve. In a corner formed by two houses, she sat down shivering. She drew her little feet under her, but still she grew colder and colder. She did not dare go home until she had sold some matches.
