Favourite Children's Poems of W. Neil Fraser
A Dark and Stormy Night
Anonymous


I pass on this story entirely from memory, as it was a great favourite of my father, and his father, who told it to him. I passed it on to all of my children, and I am sure they have told it to my grandchildren. I suspect there is a source for the story, but have never been able to find one.

A Dark and Stormy Night

It was a dark and stormy night,
And villainous brigands, large and small,
Were gathered ‘round their campfire bright,
When their dark Master arose and said:
Antonio, relate unto us a story.

And Antonio arose and said:
It was a dark and stormy night,
And villainous brigands, large and small,
Were gathered ‘round their campfire bright,
When their dark Master arose and said:
Antonio, relate unto us a story.

And Antonio arose and said:
It was a dark and stormy night,
And villainous brigands, large and small,
Were gathered ‘round their campfire bright,
When their dark Master arose and said:
Antonio, relate unto us a story.

And Antonio arose and said:
It was a dark and stormy night,
And villainous brigands, large and small,
Were gathered ‘round their campfire bright,
When their dark Master arose and said:
Antonio, relate unto us a story.

And on, and on, and on…until you either fall asleep, or catch-on that your father is pulling your leg.
