Snow White and Rose Red
Adapted from http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~spok/grimmtmp/122.txt
There was once a poor widower who lived in a lonely cottage. In front of the cottage was a garden wherein stood two rose-trees, one of which bore white and the other red roses. He had two children who were like the two rose-trees, and one was called snow-white, and the other rose-red. They were as good and happy, as busy and cheerful as ever two children in the world were, only snow-white was more quiet and gentle than rose-red.
