In a hut in the woods lived a girl and boy,
little did they know their mother had a ploy.
The boy was named Hansel and the girl was Gretel;
They had nothing to eat or drink but water from a kettle!

One day their mother told them to gather wood;
just like little boys and girls should.
they did not know their mother wanted them lost;
whether deep in the forest or in a night's frost.

They followed their father out that day;
it was cold but sunny for the month of May;
in their pockets they had bits of bread to eat;
as bread was such a big treat.

They gathered wood in a forest so deep,
It scared Gretel so and she began to weep.
Suddenly they noticed their father was gone,
the warmth was fading and so was the sun.

They were lost and very alone,
And the wind chilled them to the bone.
But then there was a wonderful smell;
It smelled of food- one could tell!

They followed the scent with their little noses,
past creepy trees and wild roses.
Hansel and Gretel saw a house at the end,
made out of sweets, what a wonderful blend!

They ate from walls made of cake and sugar toast;
Hansel stuffed his mouth the most.
Suddenly, an old woman came into view;
She crooned: "Who are you?"

"Are you so hungry that you eat my house?
Nibbling at my walls like a mouse?
Oh you two look so thin,
Come in my house, come in!"

Hansel and Gretel followed hag inside;
She asked: "What else have you tried?
Do you want to try the cupcakes and the muffins too?
Have some cookies with icing red and blue!"

There was a large cauldron and oven for baking;
Delicious little children were in the making!
All of a sudden, Hansel found himself in a bag;
And he cried "Let me out of here, you hag!"

Gretel did what the witch asked her to do,
She cleaned and fed her brother a lot too.
The witch wanted to eat them fat;
She was going to put Hansel first in a sugary vat!

She was ready to cook Hansel that day;
And turn him into little cookies on a tray.
For Hansel this was very dire...
when suddenly Gretel pushed the hag into the fire!

Gretel locked the oven real tight;
and the witch screamed with all her might.
Hansel and Gretel were finally free-
away from the witch's baking and sorcery.

They found their way back to their home;
a whole night did they roam.
Their father was filled with joy;
safe was his little girl and his little boy!

The townspeople knew of the story;
and how the witch's end was gory.
Heroes they returned to be;
the whole town was afraid of the witch you see.

Now they were a family once more;
taking care of each other better than before.
Hansel and Gretel would never starve again;
gone forever was the witch's reign!

And the moral of this story is:

There are times when you are called to be brave and there are times when you will need help and that help won't come from Mom or Dad or the people you know. You don't have to worry about all strangers. Some will be good and some will be bad. Strangers will come in all forms of people. Don't forget that when you're being brave, you also have to decide if the person trying to help you is someone truly nice and trust worthy.
