Story Time

Tell me a story at the end of the day

I’ve had enough of study

Had enough of play

Time to put my feet up

Settle and relax

Tell to me a story

Before we’re making tracks


The ‘seanchai’ in olden times

Talked the night away

And novels read by candlelight

Took us on our way

Now television everywhere

Films on which to feast

Keep us fed with stories

Beauty and the beast


The story helps us see the world

Helps us understand

The why and how and wherefore

The history of our land

I read to my son Michael

Each night he went to bed

The loveliest thing I ever did

Night night to your sweet head
