The moral of the poem A Legend of the Northland is that greed is a curse for human beings. If God has given us basic things like shelter, food and comfort, then we should take care of those people who don’t have all these. We should never be stone-hearted towards the needy.
In this poem, the little woman refuses to give even a single piece of cake to Saint Peter because of her selfish and greedy nature. Saint Peter who is half fainted because of hunger gets provoked and curses her to become a woodpecker.
In real life as well, a greedy person cannot live a peaceful life. Hence we should be generous and never refuse food, shelter or even help to those in need.
