the Grimm brothers, iii.

In the museum that was once (upon a time)
their home,
in what was their barn,
rests an old Bible
dating back to 1710,
that belonged to Friedrich Grimm,
the brothers’ grandfather,
pastor in Steinau from 1730 to 1777.

Bible stories were
part of the heritage
of the collectors of fairy tales.

They knew to recognize
stories that needed to be preserved.
