The House that Jack Built

This is the taper that lights the way

This is the cloak that covers the stone

That sharpens the knife

Martin,_John_-_The_Deluge_-_1834

That binds the staff

That’s owned by the Maid

 Who tends the fire

George_Frederick_Watts_The_All_Pervading_250

That boils the pot

That scalds the sword

That fashions the bridge

 the_angel_with_the_flaming_sword-large

That crosses the ditch

 That compasses the hand

That knocks the door

 Walhalla_(1896)_by_Max_Brückner

That fetches the watch

That releases the man

That turns the mill

cittadelsole

That grinds the corn

That makes the cake

That feeds the hound

Image result for guardian at the gate

 

That guards the gate

That hides the maze

That’s worth a light

And into the castle that jack built
