Carry On Tuesday # 90

Your prompt for Tuesday February 1st

We stay with children this week with the first verse of Longfellow’s poem The Children’s Hour

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

Use any part of it within your poem or prose then leave the url of your piece with Mister Linky
A comment would also be appreciated

To hear and read the poem in full go to Carry On Tuesday Plus


  1. Didn't think I could do it and yet, I pulled off a pretty nifty little piece. AND I am first this time around, amazing what happens when the muse strikes!

  2. Lovely beauty in this quote! Enchanting!

  3. I loved the whole piece! But I only used the first line and changed the time of day, from the Children's Hour, to my time. Thanks

  4. Back in the saddle, yay!
