Jorinde und Joringel by kakao-bean Jorinde und Joringel by kakao-bean
Now, there was once a maiden who was called Jorinda, who was fairer than all other girls. She and a handsome youth named Joringel had promised to marry each other. They were still in the days of betrothal, and their greatest happiness was being together. One day in order that they might be able to talk together in quiet they went for a walk in the forest. “Take care,” said Joringel, “that you do not go too near the castle.”

It was a beautiful evening; the sun shone brightly between the trunks of the trees into the dark green of the forest, and the turtle-doves sang mournfully upon the young boughs of the birch-trees.

Jorinda wept now and then: she sat down in the sunshine and was sorrowful. Joringel was sorrowful too; they were as sad as if they were about to die. Then they looked around them, and were quite at a loss, for they did not know by which way they should go home. The sun was still half above the mountain and half set.

No, you are talking about a different tale. They are two lovers.

Hmmm...been a while since I read it. There was a tale with two siblings with similar names--cannot think of the name now!

I love the little red berries and the bird perched on the small scraggly trees. The poses are very natural, too :)

Overall, it has a lovely fairytale feel to it.
