“I   FEEL ashamed Matilda
To see you such a shirk!
I really think you’d run a mile
To get away from work.”
So spoke Matilda’s mother
Reprovingly one day,
But Mattie only shrugged and sulked
And turned her face away.
Soon mother left her then alone,
The door was open wide.
On tip-toes Mattie crossed the floor,
And gaily ran outside.
She left her room undusted,
She left her bed unmade,
Indeed she really was a shirk
I’m very much afraid.

With joy she gaily scampered
Across the meadows wide,
And chased the pretty butterflies
That flew from side to side.
And on and on she wandered
Until she reached a wood,
And there, deep in the shadows
A little grey house stood.

A dwarf was in the doorway,
The door stood open wide,
A lean and hungry-looking cat
Was mewing just inside.
The old dwarf grinned and beckoned,
“Come in, come in,” cried he;
“I need a little servant maid,
And you will do for me.”

“I have no wish to serve you,”
Matilda quickly cried.
But still the old dwarf beckoned her
And made her step inside.
He made her cook the dinner,
He made her work all day.
He watched her close, and left no chance
For her to run away.
