This old Germanic tale is mysterious and broken by time. It has been told throughout the centuries and is now manifest in our culture as the nursery rhyme Jack and Jill.
Jack and Jill went up the hill

Up Jack got and home did trot
as fast as he could caper.
He went to bed to mind his head
with vinegar and brown paper.
