First words
Unlike the Brothers Grimm, who collected and recorded popular tales, Hans Christian Andersen wrote his own "folk" tales, using story elements and images called, to be sure, from his childhood recollections.
The Tinder-Box:

There came a soldier marching along the high road - one, two! one, two!
The Tinder Box (1835)
There came a solider marching down the high road - 9one, Two! One, Two.
