“ Now once upon a time, although not very long ago,  And hidden in the forest where the tall dark pine trees grow, There lived a boy named Toffle in a house that stood alone, He always felt so lonely, and one night was heard to moan: "I feel so frightened of the dark, especially tonight, Perhaps I’ll feel a bit more safe if all my lamps I light, And if that doesn’t really help, then into bed I’ll creep And cover up my head and try to cry myself to sleep.”
