She would begin with a glow in her eyes

     and tell me their story.
All of their tales she knew, by the

     hundreds and hundreds she knew them.
Tales of the beings divine . . .
Mark! what I as a child picked up,
     the old man still plays with.
Pictures of heroes in sound that lasts,
     when spoken, forever,
Images fair of the world and marvellous

     legends aforetime,
All of them living in me as they fell
    from the lips of my mother.

                                              --Denton T. Snyder

"I would rather be a teller of stories to children than be the Queen's favorite or serve in the King's court."

Julia Cowley

"Let me beg of you, mothers, do not think you cannot tell stories. Try; try; keep on trying; and ease in telling is bound to come."
