Many children's stories and fairy tales today. The picture above is from English Fairy Tales, and shows the King of Elfland in the Dark Tower menacing Childe Rowland and his sister Burd Ellen. This story is referenced in King Lear, in one of the Fool's songs. An interesting thing I learned in the book of carols is that this type of song was not only for Christmas; there are Easter, summer, and harvest carols as well.
