Our Lady's Little Glass Summary

A waggoner's wine cart is stuck. Our Lady comes by and tells the man that if he will give her a glass of wine, she will get his cart unstuck. He gladly offers the wine but has no glass. She picks a flower from the field into which he pours the wine. As Our Lady drinks the wine, the cart is unstuck. The flower has since been called Our Lady's Little Glass.
