ODOP: Old Danilo (9)

“I am Vasilisa the Tall,” she said.
“Whether I am fair I would hardly know.
My parents, too lame to work, have children
Besides me, and I their first support them
By my toils. But then, I do not complain.
I labor the long day and spin by the
Light of my fingers late into the night.
I feed my family and yet I cheat no
One, for I am an honorable girl,
And not the sort that sinks too easily.”
