Abstract

A moralistic poem about the infanticide committed by 37 year-old Maria Elisabetha Beckensteinerin written from the point of view of the murderess. It states that she was not properly reared by her parents so she had no good moral example. She eventually had to steal in order to eat. She apologizes to her husband and warns parents to keep their children on the proper moral path. She is sentenced to beheading with a sword.
