- A girl sits under a juniper tree with the bones of her brother. Her house sits on a hill, more bones are under the ground, a bird is singing in the sky, the lyrics painted across the heavens, behind everything.

- the song:

my mother she killed me,
my father he ate me,
my sister, little marlinchen,
gathered together all my bones,
tied them in a silken handkerchief,
laid them beneath the juniper tree,
kywitt, kywitt, what a beautiful bird am I.

- This piece is inspired by the Grimm fairy tale the Juniper Tree.

- It is for someone who likes a piece that tells a whole story or a fan of obscure, lesser known Grimm fairy tales.
