"Go on a little FURTHER," said the HEN-WIFE, "till you come to a ROUND GREEN HILL, surrounded with TERRACE-RINGS, from the BOTTOM to the TOP; go round it THREE times 'WIDDERSHINS,' and each TIME say:
"'OPEN, DOOR! OPEN, DOOR!
And let me COME IN,'
and the THIRD time the DOOR will OPEN, and you may GO IN." And CHILDE ROWLAND was just GOING ON, when he REMEMBERED what he HAD to do; so he OUT with the GOOD BRAND, that NEVER STRUCK in vain, and OFF went the HEN-WIFE'S HEAD.
Then he went ON, and ON, and ON, till he came to the ROUND GREEN HILL with the TERRACE-RINGS from TOP to BOTTOM, and he went ROUND it THREE times, "WIDDERSHINS," saying each TIME:
"OPEN, DOOR! OPEN, DOOR!
And let me COME IN."
And the THIRD time the DOOR did OPEN, and he WENT IN, and it CLOSED with a CLICK, and CHILDE ROWLAND was left in the DARK.
