The Proud Pen by Hans Christian Andersen


Behind, in the window, sat an old Pen that the maid used to write with. There was nothing remarkable about it, except that it was too deeply immersed in ink; but that was just what it was proud of, and made a fuss about.

Hans Christian Andersen, The Flying Trunk (The Bundle of Matches) in Fairy Tales, published in 1869 by Allen Bros. New York, digitised by Google.
