Hansel & Gretel

     Hansel went up and broke off a piece of the roof to see what it tasted like. Gretel went to the window and nibbled at that. A gentle voice called out from within:

         "Nibbling, nibbling like a mouse,
          Who's nibbling at my little house?"

      The children answered:
     
         "The wind, the wind doth blow
          From heaven to earth below."
