Mad Meg is a charming, poetic piece about two sisters: Martha, who was as warm as the sun, and Meg who was as moody as the moon. When Simon shows up at their farm, Meg is immediately taken with the stranger. Simon, however, falls in love with Martha. This enrages Meg, who curses the town and stops the river.

“The villagers now locked their doors, afraid of Mad Meg on the Moor.
To teir children they sometimes said, Mad Meg’ll get you if you don’t go to bed.
They’d point at the moon up in the sky, look there’s Mad Meg’s eye. Mad Meg made the river dry.”
