One day the woman was standing by this window and looking down
into the garden, when she saw a bed which was planted with the
most beautiful rampion - Rapunzel, and it looked so fresh and
green that she longed for it, and had the greatest desire to eat
some. This desire increased every day, and as she knew that she
could not get any of it, she quite pined away, and began to look
pale and miserable.
Then her husband was alarmed, and asked, "What ails you, dear
"Ah," she replied, "if I can't eat some of the rampion, which is
in the garden behind our house, I shall die."
