the Grimm brothers, ii.

The Grimm brothers
did not make up any of their fairy tales.

They heard them told,
and they recorded them.

They are known world-wide
for having recognized the worth of certain stories
and for having written down versions
to relay to others
in the belief that though particular and local,
these stories were profoundly important.

Kind of like preachers that way!
