Herford: The Nurse and the Wolf

A hungry Wolf once paused outside
A cottage where an infant cried,
And, listening, heard the nurse exclaim,
"Be still, you naughty child! For shame!
If you don't stop at once, I'll throw
You to the wolf outside." "Oho!"
Chuckled the Wolf, "how fortunate!
I'll stay just where I am and wait,
And soon my supper I shall get."
For all we know, he's waiting yet.
