Written by Southey and Grimm
About trouble that children get in
On forest visits they were up to no good
Traveling not where they should
Goldilocks saw no one but some porridge
Helped herself, in a rude forage
Plopped herself on their chairs
Fell asleep on beds belonging to bears.
Hansel and Gretel took their turn
Saw a house of sweets for which they yearned
Eating while a witch watched, but she wasn’t as clever
Tricked her, now she’s in her oven forever.
