Tell me a story

She was four years old
Most lovely girl in the world
Should I be so bold

Every night the same
Dad tell me a story please
What else could I do?

So Peter Rabbit
Fairies, goblins, dragons too
Made her want much more

Alice and rabbit
Queen of hearts and mad hatter
Was her magic world

But my favorite
Was Blyton’s Faraway tree
Dad read it to me

My heart skips a beat
When I hear her pleading cry
Tell me a story

  1. Ah the magic faraway of my favourites..though i was never lucky enough to have someone read it to me...a touching piece Old Egg..

  2. Charming. I loved and read all of Enid Blyton's books.

  3. Beautiful. How I miss reading stories to my children. I have never heard of the Faraway Tree. Off to go look for it!

  4. That book looks darling! I had never heard of it until now.

  5. There were four little Rabbits, and their names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter. Took me back to my kids' childhoods.

  6. I know that little cry too. It's embedded deep in my heart. Thank you for reminding me.
