The Bramble Briar


A farmer's daughter loves his servant.

Her brothers murder him to prevent the family fortune going to him.

They tell her that her loves was lost, but his ghost appears to her in a dream and leads her to the ditch full of bramble briars, where his body was thrown. She stays with him until hunger forces her to return home and tells her brothers they will be hanged for the crime.
