As he drew near it he heard someone singing so sweetly that he stood still spell-bound. Then her husband grew alarmed and said: 'What ails you. I know I shall die. which looked into the most lovely garden. but he sought in vain for a door in the tower. Whenever she heard the Witch's voice she unloosed her plaits. necessity alone drove me to the deed. and just because she knew she couldn't possibly get any. and no one dared to enter it. standing before him. was the old witch. it happened one day that a Prince was riding through the wood and passed by the tower. My wife saw your rampion from her window. and having given it the name of Rapunzel. It was Rapunzel in her loneliness trying to while away the time by letting her sweet voice ring out into the wood. 'climb into my garden and steal my rampion like a common thief? You shall suffer for your foolhardiness.' The man. 'if I don't get some rampion to eat out of the garden behind the house. and it was as fine as spun gold. who loved her dearly. 'How dare you. which is the same as rampion.' she answered. and the old Witch climbed up by it. and the tower had neither stairs nor doors. he returned with them to his wife. 'pardon my presumption. These good people had a little window at the back of their house. and let her hair fall down out of the window about twenty yards below. she pined away and became quite pale and wretched.' Then the Witch's anger was a little appeased. All shall go well with it.' The man in his terror agreed to everything she asked.' So at dusk he climbed over the wall into the witch's garden. full of all manner of beautiful flowers and vegetables. with a wrathful glance. and she said: 'If it's as you say. but on one condition only -. and fetch her some more. If she were to know any peace of mind. The desire grew day by day. dear wife?' 'Oh. 'Come! rather than let your wife die you shall fetch her some rampion. and conceived such a desire for it that she would certainly have died if her wish had not been gratified. and listened.' 'Oh!' he implored.Once upon a time there lived a man and his wife who were very unhappy because they had no children. After they had lived like this for a few years. and.that you give me the child your wife will shortly bring into the world. but the garden was surrounded by a high wall. and as soon as the child was born the Witch appeared. The Prince longed to see the owner of the voice. He rode home. in the middle of a great wood. but he was so haunted by the song he had heard that he returned every day . and saw there a bed full of the finest rampion: the leaves looked so fresh and green that she longed to eat them. hastily gathering a handful of rampion leaves. who was feared by the whole world. she carried it off with her. you may take as much rampion away with you as you like. but when he reached the other side he drew back in terror. for it belonged to a witch of great power. only high up at the very top a small window. Let down your golden hair.' she said. When the old Witch wanted to get in she stood underneath and called out: 'Rapunzel.' for Rapunzel had wonderful long hair. Rapunzel was the most beautiful child under the sun. for there. which tasted so good that her longing for the forbidden food was greater than ever. She made them into a salad. and I will look after it like a mother. thought to himself. When she was twelve years old the Witch shut her up in a tower. One day the woman stood at the window overlooking the garden. Rapunzel. there was nothing for it but that her husband should climb over the garden wall again. no matter the cost. So at dusk over he got.

and there left her to live in loneliness and misery. 'What is this I hear? I thought I had hidden you safely from the whole world. eating nothing but roots and berries. that he felt he should know no peace of mind till he had seen her. Rapunzel is lost to you for ever -. Of a sudden he heard a voice which seemed strangely familiar to him. 'So that's the staircase. and in a moment they .' cried the Witch. Rapunzel. Let down your golden hair. because the old woman was with her during the day.' 'Oh! you wicked child. So he wandered about for some years. and weeping and lamenting the loss of his lovely bride. and then grasping a pair of scissors in her right. only how am I to get down out of the tower? Every time you come to see me you must bring a skein of silk with you. for she had never seen one before. not thinking of what she was about. and will scratch out your eyes too. and you will take me away on your horse. I will gladly go with you. He walked eagerly in the direction of the sound. he was to come to her every evening. and when he was quite close. The old Witch. and I will make a ladder of them. and I'll certainly be happier with him than with the old Witch. but the pretty bird has flown and its song is dumb. when he was standing thus behind a tree. the Witch fastened the plaits on to a hook in the window. and. and cried mockingly: 'Ah. who fixed her evil. and in his despair he jumped right down from the tower.you will never see her more.' she thought. wound it round and round her left hand. Rapunzel. And. she was so hard-hearted that she took Rapunzel to a lonely desert place. but instead of his beloved Rapunzel he found the old Witch. and when it is finished I will climb down by it. but the Prince spoke to her so kindly. of course. and in spite of it you have managed to deceive me. One day. and at last he came to the desert place where Rapunzel was living.' she let them down. Rapunzel. Rapunzel recognised him and fell on his neck and wept. and the Prince climbed up as usual. through the wood.' Then Rapunzel let down her plaits. that you are so much harder to pull up than the young Prince? He is always with me in a moment. and when he asked her to marry him she consented at once. and told her at once that his heart had been so touched by her singing. ah! you thought to find your lady love. turned to the Witch and said: 'How is it. the thorns among which he fell pierced his eyes out.' and as soon as she had let it down the Prince climbed up. he saw the old Witch approach and heard her call out: 'Rapunzel. 'For. and the beautiful plaits lay on the ground. he went to the foot of the tower and cried: 'Rapunzel. as wretched and unhappy as he could well be. 'he is young and handsome. At first Rapunzel was terribly frightened when a man came in. Let down your golden hair. knew nothing of what was going on.' They arranged that till the ladder was ready. 'Then I too will climb it and try my luck. the cat caught it. Let down your golden hair. But on the evening of the day in which she had driven poor Rapunzel away. But two of her tears touched his eyes. off it came. at dusk.' So on the following day. blind and miserable. snip snap.' In her wrath she seized Rapunzel's beautiful hair.' The Prince was beside himself with grief. is it?' said the Prince. and when the Prince came and called out: 'Rapunzel. till one day Rapunzel.' So she put her hand in his and said: 'Yes. Then he wandered. glittering eyes on him. worse than this. Very soon Rapunzel forgot her fear. though he escaped with his life.to the wood and listened. and the Witch climbed up by them. good mother.
