Сказка Ганса Христиана Андерсена 'A Leaf from Heaven'

Грустная история о том, что неоцененная красота может погибнуть безвозвратно.

Фрагмент текста на английском языке:

High up in the clear, pure air flew an angel, with a flower plucked from the garden of heaven. As he was kissing the flower a very little leaf fell from it and sunk down into the soft earth in the middle of a wood. It immediately took root, sprouted, and sent out shoots among the other plants. "What a ridiculous little shoot!" said one. "No one will recognize it; not even the thistle nor the stinging nettle." "It must be a kind of garden plant," said another; and so they sneered and despised the plant as a thing from a garden. "Where are you coming?" said the tall thistles whose leaves were all armed with thorns. "It is stupid nonsense to allow yourself to shoot out in this way; we are not here to support you."

О чем сказка:

Пролетающий ангел уронил на землю лепесток небесного цеветка, из которого выросло растение невиданной красоты. Но оказалось, что крастота растения доступна не всем. Неоцененная крастота может погибнуть безвозвратно.
