The Truth Behind the Fairy Tale Rapunzel


Rapunzel was deathly afraid of scissors so she let her hair grow,
when there was no space in her room she threw her hair out the window.
One day the prince, a talent agent, climbed up hoping to find some new talent.
Rapunzel married him because he said she could sing and she thought he was gallant.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born
