The Martisor

Once upon a time there was a King who had a beautiful and kind daughter.
The King loved his daughter but he realized that it was time for her to get married.
So she had a nice party on the 1st of March. Many young men came to the King’s palace. They brought a lot of gifts but the King’s daughter sent them all away.
Before midnight a young man arrived at the palace. As he was very poor he could only bring her a “Martisor” and a blossom from a tree.
The King’s daughter was so moved by his gift that she decided to marry him.
She then decided that from that day on everybody in her Kingdome had to celebrate the”Martisor”.

The first of march descends
On Spring wings
And from its light flight
Sends you a “Martisor”.
