Altered Words – The Dead Ones

The Dead Ones

When night fell
he put on a long black gown
and when the last stroke of the clock faded
he cried out with a loud shrill voice,
“Behold, the dead ones!
Gather their bones together.
Come, come crawl into the graveyard.
Your desire, I’ll follow.”

– from The Master Thief in The Complete Fairy Tales of The Brothers Grimm – Page 604

    • Eee! It makes me so happy that people are enjoying them! And Grimm is a large book so I think I’ll have enough source material for at least the next year 🙂
