Rapunzel’s New Hairstyle

“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your… where’s your hair?”

“Prince! I’m here! I got a new hairstyle, just for you!”

“But Rapunzel, you’ll be trapped! Now how will you let down your golden hair?”

Afraid of the witchy stepmother’s return, Prince began to climb the big tree which had grown alongside the tower for a century.

When he touched the second branch, it’s leaves turned brown and orange. By the time he reached the top, the tree was strewn with golden threads.

Prince tossed a handful of the shimmering silk through the window to Rapunzel, who gladly climbed down its rope.

word count: 100

From Rapunzel by The Grimm Brothers

When the enchantress wanted to go in, she placed herself beneath [the tower] and cried,

“Rapunzel, Rapunzel,
Let down your hair!”

Rapunzel had magnificent long hair, fine as spun gold, and when she heard the voice of the enchantress she unfastened her braided tresses, wound them round one of the hooks of the window above, and then the hair fell twenty ells down, and the enchantress climbed up by it.
