The traditional children's tale is of two children abandoned in a wood, who die and are covered with leaves by robins.
And when they were dead,
The robins so red,
Brought strawberry leaves,
And over them spread;
And all the day long,
The branches among,
They mournfully whistled,
And this was their song;
Poor babes in the wood! poor babes in the wood!
Oh! don't you remember the babes in the wood?
