"Camp-Fire tales should be heard and not read...
So I have narrated this story to get into your head!"

Please play the Video below to hear the tale unfold...


THE END


(The words are included below, for those unable to view the video)




The CREATURES of The NIGHT

“Gather round children! and open your ears,
to this tale I will tell you, to fill you with fear!
Sit down by the fire, get warm in its glow,
and hope that it staves off the chills that will grow.
For night-time brings terrors and monstrous frights,
and they’re brought to us by... Creatures of The Night!

They’re always there waiting for night-time to come,
for that is when all of their best work is done.
They just sit there staring with eyes - oh so black,
waiting for us to retire to the sack.
Then they make sure they can get under our covers,
and they wriggle up closer than all of the others.”


“Are they ghosts?” whispered Sally, her heart full of fear,
as her vision was blurred by the fall of a tear.
“Oh, they’re no ghosts!” Came her teachers reply;
“For these creatures are solid, as You Or I!
As real as the leaves or the bark of a tree,
and they’re always around, but we don’t always see.

‘Cause they’re hidden away when the daylight is bright
and they don’t cross our minds, ‘til the day becomes night.
Like the moon they come skulking when the sunlight is gone,
and they cling close beside us, until it is dawn.
So close - our breath ruffles the fur on their faces,
as we slumber and dream of nice faraway places.

Their feet have the biggest and paddiest of paws,
and I wouldn’t be surprised if their toes had great claws.
Their eyes are so black that you’d think they were coals,
and they stare so intently that it touches our souls.
They stay, oh-so-quiet - they never say a word,
and can hide undetected like the stealthiest of birds.

These creatures are clever, as smart as they come,
and no one has caught one, not even your mum!
They’re furry and stealthy, they stay close at night,
but you know they’re not there to give us a fright.
For their job is to watch over us when we close our eyes,
Yes, even when there’s thunder or rain in the skies.

Their fur keeps us warm as we give them a hug,
and they scare away demons and all the bed bugs.
Their eyes always watching and keeping us safe,
from the terrors and ghouls that abide in this place.
They never let us down and they’ll always be there,
for the creatures I speak of are our own...


...Teddy Bears!

OMG!!!

Completely amazing... I'm just awestruck. How right you are that campfire stories should be told and not read, and with your lovely accent and surprise ending as only you can pull off
this is a fabulous story addition to the contest.
And now...sudden craving for 'smores...

Aww c'mon...it's all in rhyme!!! I'm always impressed with a great rhyme, lol.

You know I want to try to do one now too.
I'm just so damn impressed with that...and you.

Okay, enough now or you're head won't fit through the Shed door.

Gordi, Thank you.

Very much enjoyed your story.

Your accent made it even more enjoyable.

I wonder if you will be invited to do your reading at your boy's school?

I would bet all the kids would love it. And how proud your boy's will be.

to send you something nice.

So, should you splurge,
and follow the urge,
our rhymes will enter twice!

Hm, interesting idea. I considered something very vaguely similar but I wasn't sure it would be within the rules of the competition. Or, at the very least, a fair thing to do.

You know, I sort of wish the competition was a fortnightly thing rather than a monthly thing...

The words "good" "great" and "excellent" do not seem adequate to express my admiration for your story and video.
