'''''Willie's Lady''''' is ChildBallad #6.

Willie has married, but his mother, a rank witch, hates his bride and has {{curse}}d her to die in childbirth. He tries to bribe her, and she refuses. At the advice of Belly Blind, a household sprite, he tricks her into thinking that the baby has been born. She falls in to a rage and demands to know who undid all the things she did to prevent it. Willie undoes them all, and the baby is born.
