It’s Dark Out

22 December 2009

it's dark out

It’s dark out
It’s dark out
Although the hour’s early;
It isn’t even five o’clock
And yet it’s dark all down the block
Because the season’s winter
And the sun has gone to bed.

“From trickling trills to tongue twisters, Children’s Poet Laureate Mary Ann Hoberman reads from The Llama Who Had No Pajama.” Watch and listen here.
