224                        THE WHITE DOE
Dawn found them still conversing; and the sun was high in the heavens before the princess perceived that she retained her human form. Ah! how happy she was when she knew that the days of her punishment were over; and with a glad voice she told the prince the tale of her enchantment.
So the story ended well after all; and the fairy Tulip, who turned out to be the old woman of the hut, made the young couple such a wedding feast as had never been seen since the world began. And everybody was delighted, except Ce*risette and her mother, who were put in a boat and carried to a small island, where they had to work hard for their living.
{Pontes des Fees, par Madame d'Aulnoy.)
