    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    "Willy O Winsbury" is a ballad from the Child Ballads: "The Child Ballads is the colloquial name given to a collection of 305 ballads collected in the 19th century by Francis James Child and originally published in ten volumes between 1882 and 1898 under the title The English and Scottish Popular Ballads." List of the Child Ballads lists 305 of them along with briefs synopses.

    "Willy O Winsbury" is described as "While the king is away, his daughter becomes pregnant by the hero, William or Thomas. The king threatens to hang him, but is struck by his beauty and offers him the heroine and gold. The hero accepts the lady but declares that he has both gold and lands enough of his own."

    "Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight" - "A knight courts Lady Isabel, promising to marry her if she rides away with him. When they reach the forest (or seashore), he prepares to murder her, as he did seven others. Using her wits, Lady Isabel tricks the knight and slays him."

    "The Fair Flower of Northumberland" - "A Scottish knight is captured by the Earl of Northumberland. The knight persuades the Earl's daughter to free him, promising to marry her as soon as they get to Scotland. When they reach his home, he tells her to go back, that he already has a wife and children. After begging the knight to take her as a servant or kill her, the fair flower returns home to face disgrace."

    "Babylon; or, The Bonnie Banks o Fordie" - "Three sisters encounter a robber who threatens to murder each if they refuse to become his wife. After he kills two of the maids, the youngest reveals she has a brother who is an outlaw who will surely retaliate. The attacker then realizes the girls are his sisters and kills himself."

    "The Farmer's Curst Wife" - "The devil comes for a farmer's wife. The farmer welcomes him and expresses hope that the devil and his wife will never part. Once in hell, the woman is as ill behaved as she was at home. Fearful for the others in hell, Satan bundles up the woman and returns her to her husband."

    And ballads like that.
