Herford: The Kid and the Wolf

A Kid, safe in a hayloft high,
Laughed at a Wolf that happened by;
"Well," said the Wolf, "I must admit
Up there you have the best of it;
But let the Hayloft have its due,
'Tis the Loft laughs at me, not you;
If you don't think so, try your wit
Down here, and see who laughs at it!"
