    Default Swedish Folk Tales

    This Swedish story was taken from a textbook but I didn't want to take a picture of it in case of copyright.

    The book tells us where they're from. This one is from Vrmlands. I will try to share more in this thread. They will mostly be short ones, I think. I have also included the notes that come with the tale.






    The Polite Coal burner

    At Vejefors forge, up near the northern frontier, there was, many years ago, a charcoal burner who, however vigilant he might be, always had to rebuild and burn his stacks. Now, the wood was not burned enough, again, poorly burned, and a thousand annoyances persued him in his work.

    One evening, as he sat in his hut mending his tools, a beautiful maiden entered, and, complaining that she was almost frozen, asked permission to warm herself at the fire.

    The coal burner, who had been long in the woods, understood at once that his visitor was a wood nymph, beautiful and enchanting when seen face to face, but, when seen behind, is adorned with a bushy fox tail.



    "When she had warmed herself in front awhile, she turned her back to the fire, and the coal burner was given an opportunity to see the tail, whereupon, with unexpected courtesy, addressed his guest;

    "Miss, look in out for your train, please!"

    That nice name for her troublesome appendage won the Troll woman's affections, and from that day eveything went admirably with the coal burner.



    *From Norway we have a similar story, by Faye, Norske Folkesagn, which relates that a wood nymph one time attended a dance, where she had as a partner a young m. They will mostly be short ones, I think. I have also included the notes that come with the tale.

    Some tales are warnings and I think this one is one of them now that you mention it. Be good to the spirit of your home and your life will prosper but if you don't you will suffer and so they suffer now.

    The Child Phantom

    Many years ago there died, on the estate of Sundshult, in the parish of Nafverstad, a child of illegitimate birth, which, because of this, was not christened and could not be accorded Christian burial, or a place in heaven, and whose spirit, therefore, was left to wander the earth, disturbing the rest and makingI night uncomfortable for the people of the neighborhood.

    One time, just before Christmas, the parish shoemaker, on his rounds, was unexpectedly startled from his employment by a little child appearing before him, which said:

    "Why do you sit there? Move aside."

    "For what?" asked the shoemaker.

    "Because I wish to dance, " said the spectre.

    "Dance away, then!" said the shoemaker.

    When the child had danced some time it disappeared, but returned soon and said:

    "I will dance again, and I'll dance your light out for you."

    "No," said the shoemaker, "let the light alone. But who are you that you are here in this manner?"

    " I ive under the lower stone of the steps to the porch."

    "Who put you there?" asked the shoemaker.

    "Watch when it dawns, and you will see my mother coming, wearing a red cap. But help me out of this, and I'll never dance again."

    This the shoemaker promised to do, and the spectre vanished.

    The next day a servant girl from the neighboring estate came, who wore upon her head a red handkerchief.

    Digging was begun under the designated step, and in time the skeleton of a child was found, encased in a wooden tub. The body was that day taken to the churchyard, and the mother, who had destroyed her child, turned over to the authorities. Since then the child spectre has danced no more.

    The Knight of Ellenholm

    Many, many year ago there lived, in Ellenholm Castle, a knight, who, wishing to attend Christmas matins at Morrum's Church, with a long journey before him, and anxious to be present if possible at first matins, set out from the castle, accompanied by his groom, immediately after midnight. Some distance on the way, feeling sleepy, he instructed the groom to ride on while he dismounted and sat down by the roadside, at the foot of a mountain, to take a nap and refresh himself.

    He had been sitting only a few minutes when a monster giantess came and bade him follow her into the mountain, which he did, and was conducted to the presence of her giant husband. Here all kinds of tempting viands were set before him, but the Knight, who knew well into what kind of company he had fallen, declined to partake of the food.

    Offended at this, the woman drew forth a knife an addressed the Knight:

    "Do you recognize this? It is the one with which you chopped me in the thigh when, one time, I was gathering hay for my calves. Father, what do you think we ought to do on with him?"

    "Let him go," said the Giant. "We can do on nothing to him for he invokes the Great Master too much."

    "So be it," said the Giantess, "but he shall have something to remember me by." Whereupon she broke the Knight's little finger.

    He soon discovered himself in the open air again, and the groom who had returned to search for his master found him in the place where he had left him, but with a little finger broken - a warning to everyone not to sleep on the way to church.
