Il bicchierino della Madonna: read the book with parallel translation into English

Una volta un carro con un pesante carico di vino si era impantanato sicché‚ il carrettiere, per quanti sforzi facesse, non riusciva a liberarlo. Proprio in quel momento la Madonna passava di là e, vedendo l'imbarazzo in cui si trovava quel pover'uomo, gli disse: -Sono stanca e assetata: dammi un bicchiere di vino e ti libererò il carro-. -Volentieri- rispose il carrettiere. -Ma non ho da darti il bicchiere per bere.- Allora la Madonna colse un fiorellino bianco striato di rosso che si chiama vento del campo e assomiglia a un bicchiere, e lo porse al carrettiere. Questi lo riempi di vino, la Madonna bevve, e in quello stesso istante il carro fu libero. Il fiorellino si chiama ancora oggi il bicchierino della Madonna.
Once upon a time a waggoner's cart which was heavily laden with wine had stuck so fast that in spite of all that he could do, he could not get it to move again. Then it chanced that Our Lady just happened to come by that way, and when she perceived the poor man's distress, she said to him, "I am tired and thirsty, give me a glass of wine, and I will set thy cart free for thee." - "Willingly," answered the waggoner, "but I have no glass in which I can give thee the wine." Then Our Lady plucked a little white flower with red stripes, called field bindweed, which looks very like a glass, and gave it to the waggoner. He filled it with wine, and then Our Lady drank it, and in the self-same instant the cart was set free, and the waggoner could drive onwards. The little flower is still always called Our Lady's Little Glass.
