Storyboard Text

  • 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 Alice, and laughing Allegra,  And Edith with golden hair.  A whisper, and then a silence:  Yet I know by their merry eyes  They are plotting and planning together, To take me by surprise. 
  • A sudden rush from the stairway, A sudden raid from the hall!  By three doors left unguarded, They enter my castle wall! They climb up into my turret, O'er the arms and back of my chair;  If I try to escape, they surround me; They seem to be everywhere. 
  • They almost devour me with kisses, Their arms about me entwine,  Till I think of the Bishop of Bingen, In his Mouse-Tower on the Rhine!  Do you think, O blue-eyed banditti, Because you have scaled the wall,  Such an old mustache as I am, Is not a match for you all! 
  • I have you fast in my fortress, And will not let you depart,  But put you down into the dungeon In the round-tower of my heart.  And there will I keep you forever, Yes, forever and a day,  Till the walls shall crumble to ruin, And moulder in dust away!
