It was a large lovely garden, with soft green grass. But the little boy whom the Giant loved was never seen again. Years went over, and the Giant grew very old and feeble.

The poor children had now nowhere to play. The poor tree was still quite covered with frost and snow, and the North Wind was blowing and oscwr above it. He could not play about any more, so he sat in a huge armchair, and watched the children at their games, and admired his garden. Its branches were all golden, and silver fruit hung down from them, and underneath it giggante the little boy he had loved.
Suddenly he rubbed his eyes in wonder, and looked and looked. The Autumn gave golden fruit to every garden, but to the Giant’s garden she gave none. Once a beautiful flower put its head out from the grass, but when it saw the notice-board it was so sorry for the children that it slipped back into the ground again, and went off to sleep. But when the children saw him they were so frightened that they all ran away, and the garden became Winter again. Only in the garden dgoista the Selfish Giant it was still Winter.
Through a wide hole in the wall the children had crept in, and they were sitting in the branches of the trees. They used to wander round the high wall when their lessons were over, and talk about the beautiful garden inside. He hastened across the grass, and came near to the child. The birds did not care to sing in it as there were no children, and the trees forgot to blossom.
And the child smiled on the Giant, and said to him, ‘You let me play once in your garden, to-day you shall come with me to my garden, which is Paradise. He did not hate the Winter now, for he knew that it was gigants the Spring asleep, and that the flowers were resting. He saw a most wonderful sight. When he arrived he saw osacr children playing in the garden.
He had been to visit his friend the Cornish ogre, and had stayed with him for seven years. But the children said that they did not know where he lived, and had never seen him before; and the Giant felt very sad.
El Gigante Egoista
One morning the Giant was lying awake in bed when he heard some lovely music. He was so small oscr he could not reach up to the branches of the tree, and he was wandering all round it, crying bitterly.
And the Giant’s heart melted as he looked out. The birds sat on the trees and sang so sweetly that the children used to stop their games in order to listen to them.
The Giant was very kind to all the children, yet he longed for his first little friend, and often spoke of him. Then the Hail stopped dancing over his iggante, and the North Wind ceased roaring, and a delicious perfume came to him through the open casement.
I will put that poor little boy on the top of the tree, and then I will knock down the wall, and my garden shall be the children’s playground for ever and ever. It was a lovely scene, only in one corner it was still Winter. And when he came quite close his face grew red with anger, and he said, ‘Who hath dared to wound thee? Then the Spring came, and all over the country there were little blossoms and little birds. It certainly was a marvellous sight. And the tree broke at once into blossom, and the birds came and sang on it, and the little boy stretched out his two arms and flung them round the Giant’s neck, and kissed him.
Every afternoon, as they were coming from school, the children used to go and play in the Giant’s garden. After the seven years were over he had said all that he had to say, for his wgoista was limited, and he determined to return to his own castle. Gigane when the children ran in that afternoon, they found the Giant lying dead under the tree, all covered with white blossoms. Every day for three hours he rattled on the roof of the castle till he broke most of the slates, and then he ran round and round the garden gihante fast as he could go.
Every afternoon, when school was over, the children came wjlde played with the Giant. And the Giant stole up behind him and took him gently in his hand, and put him up into the tree.
Here and there over the grass stood beautiful flowers like stars, and there were twelve peach-trees that in the spring-time broke out into delicate blossoms of pink and pearl, and in the autumn bore rich fruit. He was wrapped in furs, and he roared all day about the garden, and blew the chimney-pots down.
El Gigante Egoista : Oscar Wilde :
They tried to play on the road, but the road was very dusty and full of hard stones, and they did not like it. The only people who were pleased were the Snow and the Frost. But the Spring never came, nor the Summer. And the trees were so glad to have the children back again that they had covered themselves with blossoms, and were waving their arms gently above the children’s heads.
And when the people were gong to market at twelve o’clock they found the Giant playing with the children in the most beautiful garden they had ever seen. One winter morning he looked out of his window as he was dressing. It was really only a little linnet singing outside his window, but it was so long since he had heard a bird sing in his garden that it seemed to him to be the most beautiful music in the world.
So he crept downstairs and opened the front door quite softly, and went out into the garden. So it was always Winter there, and the North Wind, and the Hail, and the Frost, and the Snow danced about through the trees. It sounded so sweet to his ears that he thought it must be the King’s musicians passing by.
