Mystical/Magical Index Magical Mystical for Children -  Heading Strange Things That You See - Heading

On Pendle Hill, one starry night,                  

I saw a most mysterious sight.                      

     A witch on broom passed in the sky              

     And as she passed I had to cry:

'Oh witch, oh witch, where do you go?'

But did she answer me? Oh no!


One summer's eve on Ilkley Moor                

A tall young man *baht'at I saw,

     And Mary Jane was on his arm                      

     As they both walked around The Tarn.

Then as I called, they disappeared.

Now don’t you think this rather weird?


In Ireland on a summer's morn

I saw a tiny leprechaun.

    In a funny hat and coat of green,              

    He was the strangest man I’d seen          

I waved my hand and, as I spoke,

He vanished in a cloud of smoke.


One afternoon, when in Loch Ness,

I saw the monster they call 'Ness'            

   And with me was my little child

   Who waved to Ness and Nessie smiled.

But then she yet again escaped

Beneath the waters of the lake.
