Snowdrop In Her Glass Coffin

"We Cannot lay her in the dark earth"
said the dwarfs and so they had a transparent glass coffin made
 so that she could be seen from every side
Laid her in it and wrote on it her name and that she was a king's daughter
Then they carried the coffin into the wood and some of them always watched her
And the birds also came and bewailed Snowdrop
First and owl then a raven and lastly a dove
So Snowdrop lay a long long time in her coffin 
looking as thought she were asleep
