The Snow Maiden - Folk Tales from Old Russia

Once Upon A Time, at the edge of a deep forest, there lived a poor woodcutter and his wife. As they grew older; they became sadder and sadder because they had no children.

One day in the dead of winter, the woodcutter and his wife went to the forest to chop wood. The cold was intense; the work long and difficult. Hoping to cheer his wife, the woodcutter said, "Let us make a little snow girl."

So they set to work shaping balls of snow, and in a short while they had made a "snegurochka" - a snow maiden.

Moved by this sight, the woman sighed, "If only the good Lord had sent us a little girl to share our old age."

They did not know that The Fairy Spring had been watching them. Her daughter, Snegurochka The Snow Maiden, had yearned for the companionship of mortal humans and wanted to live with the people. But her father Winter, ruled her and would not release his daughter, Snegurochka.

The Fairy Spring, took pity and decided to set her free. But before she did, she gave her this warning: "Dear Snegurochka, you shall be safe from death by the sun's rays so long as the love for a man does not enter your heart."

Suddenly, a miracle occurred.

The eyes of the snow maiden the woodcutter and his wife had made twinkled and the breath of life parted her lips. Snow maiden no more but a real flesh and blood girl.

Snegurochka trembled and spoke: "If you will let me be your daughter, I will be a good daughter to you, the joy of your old age."

“My darling daughter, let it be as you desire,” answered the old man. “Come home with us, our longed-for little girl!” They took her by her white hands and led her from the forest.

As they went, the pine trees swayed goodbye, saying their farewell to Snegurochka, with their rustling wished her a safe journey and happy life.

The old couple brought Snegurochka home to their wooden hut, their ‘isba,’ and she began her life with them, helping them to do the chores. She was always most respectful, she never contradicted them, and they could not praise her enough, nor tire of gazing at her, she was so kind and so beautiful that no words could describe her.

Snegurochka, nevertheless, worried her adopted parents. She was not at all talkative and her face was always pale, so pale. She did not seem to have a drop of blood, yet her eyes shone like little stars. And her smile! When she smiled she lighted up the isba like a gift of rubles.

They lived together thus for one month, two months; time passed. The old couple could not rejoice enough in their daughter.

In the same village there lived a maiden called Kupava. She was a true beauty, with hair as black as a raven’s wing, skin like blood and milk, and arching brows.

One day a rich merchant came through town. His name was Mizgir, and he was young and tall. He saw Kupava and she pleased him. Kupava was not at all shy; she was saucy and never turned down an invitation to stroll.

Mizgir stopped in the village, called to all the young girls, gave them nuts and spiced bread, and danced with Kupava. From that moment he never left town, and, it must be said, he soon became Kupava’s lover. There was Kupava, the belle of the town, parading around in velvet and silks, serving sweet wines to the youths and the maidens and living the joyful life.

The day Snegurochka first strolled in the street, she met Kupava, who introduced all her friends. From then on Snegurochka came out to dance in the sun with her friends daily. A young boy, a shepherd, pleased her. He was named Lel. Snegurochka pleased him too, and they became inseparable.

Whenever the young girls came out to stroll and to sing, Lel would run to Snegurochka’s isba, tap on the window and say: “Snegurochka, dearest, come out and join the dancing.” Once she appeared, he never left her side.

One day Mizgir came to the village as the maidens were dancing in the street. He joined in with Kupava and made them all laugh. He noticed Snegurochka and she pleased him; she was so pale and so pretty! From then on Kupava seemed too dark and too heavy. Soon he found her unpleasant. Quarrels and scenes broke out between them and Mizgir stopped seeing her.

Kupava was desolate, but what could she do? One cannot please by force nor revive the past! She noticed that Mizgir often returned to the village and went to the house of Snegurochka’s old parents. The rumor flew that Mizgir had asked for Snegurochka’s hand in marriage.

When Kupava learned this, her heart trembled. She ran to Snegurochka’s isba, reproached her, insulted her, called her a viper, a traitor. She made such a scene that they had to force her to leave.

“I will go to the Tsar!” she cried. “I will not suffer this dishonor. There is no law that allows a man to compromise a maiden, then throw her aside like a useless rag!”

So Kupava went to the Tsar to beg for his help against Snegurochka, who she insisted had stolen her lover.

Tsar Berendei ruled this kingdom; he was a good and gracious Tsar who loved truth and watched over all his subjects. He listened to Kupava and ordered Snegurochka brought before him.

The Tsar’s envoys arrived at the village with a proclamation ordering Snegurochka to appear before their master.

“Good subjects of the Tsar! Listen well and tell us where the maiden Snegurochka lives. The Tsar summons her! Let her make ready in haste! If she does not come of her will we will take her by force!”

The old woodcutter was filled with fear. But the Tsar’s word was law. They helped Snegurochka to make ready and decided to accompany her, to present her to the Tsar.

Tsar Berendei lived in a splendid palace with walls of massive oak and wrought-iron doors; a large stairway led to great halls where Bukhara carpets covered the floors and guardsmen stood in scarlet kaftans with shining axes. All the vast courtyard was filled with people.

Once inside the sumptuous palace, the old couple and Snegurochka stood amazed. The ceilings and arches were covered with paintings, precious plates lined up on shelves, along the walls ran benches covered with carpets and brocades, and on these benches were seated the boyars wearing tall hats of bear fur trimmed with gold. Musicians played intricate music on their tympanums. At the far end of the hall, Tsar Berendei himself sat erect on his gilded and sculptured throne. Around him stood bodyguards in kaftans white as snow, holding silver axes.

Tsar Berendei’s long white beard fell to his belt. His fur hat was the tallest; his kaftan of precious brocade was embroidered all over with jewels and with gold.

Snegurochka was frightened; she did not dare to take a step nor to raise her eyes.

Tsar Berendei said to her: “Come here, young maiden, come closer, gentle Snegurochka. Do not be afraid, answer my questions. Did you commit the sin of separating two lovers, after stealing the heart of Kupava’s beloved? Did you flirt with him and do you intend to marry him? Make sure that you tell me the truth!”

Snegurochka approached the Tsar, curtsied low, knelt before him, and spoke the truth; that she was not at fault, neither in body nor in soul; that it was true that the merchant Mizgir had asked for her in marriage, but that he did not please her and she had refused his hand.

Tsar Benendei took Snegurochka’s hands to help her to rise, looked into her eyes and said: “I see in your eyes, lovely maiden, that you speak the truth, that you are nowhere at fault. Go home now in peace and do not be upset!”And the Tsar let Snegurochka leave with her adoptive parents.

When Kupava learned of the Tsar’s decision she went wild with grief. She ripped her sarafan, tore her pearl necklace from her white neck, ran from her isba, and threw herself in the well.

From that day on, Snegurochka grew sadder and sadder. She no longer went out in the street to stroll, not even when Lel begged her to come. She no longer danced with her friends and the long cold winter seemed like it would never end.

But Winter did finally give way, and one beautiful spring morning Lel came to Snegurochka’s little window and pleaded with her to come out with him, just once, for just a moment to feel the return of Spring. For a long while Snegurochka refused to listen, but finally she could no longer resist Lel’s pleas, and she went with him to the edge of the village.

“Lel, oh Lel, play your flute for me alone!” she said. She stood before Lel, barely alive, her feet tingling, not a drop of blood in her pale face!

With the sun shining brightly overhead they stopped to rest at a lovely grove where a melodic stream harmonized with Lel's flute music, as he played the haunting melody which had become Snegurocka's favorite song. As she listened she gazed upon young Lel and an overwhelming feeling of love filled her heart so that washed all traces of saddness out.

In an instant she knew that this was what her mother had warned her against, but she also knew that without love she would never be happy again.

Without hesitation, Snegurochka beconed to her beloved to play one more song for her and with those words she surrendered herself fully to the warmth of love. While the golden rays of the sun shone down on her she began to melt.

Lel saw nothing but a light mist rising from where she had been. The vapor rose, rose, and disappeared slowly into the blue sky toward the heavens.
