  • When Mother reads aloud, the past

    Seems real as every day;

    I hear the tramp of armies vast,

    I see the spears and lances cast,

    I join the trilling fray;

    Brave knights and ladies fair and proud

    I meet when Mother reads aloud.

    - Theresa Helburn, 'When Mother Reads Aloud'.
