Finist the Falcon

Once upon a time a merchant went to the market and asked his three daughters what presents they wanted. The two older daughters wanted new scarves and jewelry, while the kind and modest daughter named Marya asked him to bring the feather of Finist the Falcon. The merchant eventually fulfilled all their wishes and in the room of the youngest daughter the feather magically turned into a handsome prince and they fell in love with each other.

He came to see her every night and flew out the window after each meeting. But once her jealous sisters saw him and stuck sharp knifes and thorns into the window frame. Marya was asleep and did not hear anything. Finist hurt his wings, could not come to her room and had to fly far away to another kingdom. Marya cried and decided to find him. Three kind old ladies helped her and gave her a silver plate, gold egg, gold needle and small spindle, but warned her not to sell these presents.

Marya came to the palace of a princess where she heard that Finist lived. That princess wanted him to marry her. Marya started to work at the palace in the day and played with the presents from the old ladies at night. The princess wanted to buy them, but Marya refused to sell. Instead, she offered them as a present to the princess in exchange for seeing Finist at night. The sly Princess agreed, but put some sleep powder into his dinner. Marya came to see Finist three times trying to wake him up. She succeeded only the third time when her tear fell on his cheek and burned him. They hugged and kissed each other and left the palace. They returned to her home town, forgave Marya's sisters and married.
