The Seannachie
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Pat was a Seannachie. A Seannachie is an Irish storyteller.
 
2     He walked from place to place. He told the children stories. He told them about the Little People. He told them about good times.
 
3     He told the adults stories, too. He told them about the Little People. He told them about good times. He told them about bad times, too.
 
4     Yesterday Pat walked a very long way. It was getting dark. Pat was tired.
 
5     "It is too far to walk to the next town," Pat said to himself. "I am too tired. I will lie down under a tree. I will go to sleep there."
 
6     Pat found a tall tree. The tree had long branches. It was thick with leaves. It was a very old tree.
 
7     "This is a good place to sleep," Pat said aloud.
 
8     He gathered up some leaves. He put them under the tree. He made a soft bed. Everything was ready.
 
9     Pat lay down on the leaves. He put his head against the tree.
