The Trees and the Woodman, illustrated page from 'Baby's Own Aesop'
A man holds an axe in both hands above his head as he looks at the cut he is making to the trunk of a tree. Behind him lies a fallen tree, and more trees stand in the background. In the top left quarter is the rhyme, an axe decorating the first word:
"The Trees and the Woodman

The trees ask of man what he lacks;
"One bit, just to handle my axe?"
All he asks - well and good:
But he cuts down the wood,
So well does he handle his axe!

"Give me an inch and I'll take an ell."
1900
