The House that Jack Built

T

 his 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

T

 hat boils the pot

That scalds the sword

That fashions the bridge

That crosses the ditch

 That compasses the hand

That knocks the door

 

 Walhalla_(1896)_by_Max_Brückner

  

  

 

 

 

 

T

 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

 

T

 hat guards the gate

That hides the maze

That’s worth a light
