The Children’s Hour

BY HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW

Between the dark and the daylight,

When the night is beginning to lower,

Comes a pause in the day’s occupations,

That is known as the Children’s Hour.

I hear in the chamber above me

The patter of little feet,

The sound of a door that is opened,

And voices soft and sweet.

From my study I see in the lamplight,

Descending the broad hall stair,

Grave [name_f]Alice[/name_f], and laughing [name_f]Allegra[/name_f],

And [name_f]Edith[/name_f] with golden hair.


ALICE…It has to be Alice!!!
