THE WHITE RABBIT.

They both went together and knocked at the house door; the great goat said from within:

Here no one can enter,
For here is the great he-goat,
That with a spring and a bound
Will fall upon you both
And cut you in three,
And eat you up in no time!

The little ant replied:

I'm the great big ant,
That can make a hole
In your belly so big
And take out your inside.

When the little ant had said these terrible words she quietly crept in through the key hole, killed the great goat with her sting; made a hole for the rabbit, who cut up the large cabbage and put it to boil, and made some soup.

The two friends lived together very happily ever after—the white rabbit and the great big ant.
