    Two Silly Witches

    Two Silly Witches

    Hello and welcome to Dragonfly Tales, a story podcast with tales from around the world.
    It is the merry month of MAY! This episode is all about witches, who love to flit through the moonlight on the eve of May day or Bealtaine. (BeeYALtinna)
    They have a bad reputation, but we think they're misunderstood. This story is about how people can be afraid of those who are different. We hope you like our little song, sung by Agatha, Mildred and Nancy. Here are the words:
    NOW the moonbeam's dance and play
    Cares are only made for day
    Spiral through the milky way
    Among the endless starlight
     
    Hear the music of night’s call
    sigh of wood and waterfall
    pebbles tiny, mountains tall
    in the endless starlight
     
    Bless the moon and bless the breeze
    Beasts of land and birds of trees
    we are all a part of these
    We are endless starlight

    Hello and welcome to Dragonfly Tales, a story podcast with tales from around the world.
    This episode is brought to you from Ireland! Leo and I explored the capital city of Dublin, learned about an unsolved crime, did some sight-seeing and had some super Irish grub!
    Leo tells a brilliant TRUE story about Dublin Castle.
    We then headed west to the beautiful County Mayo, and the mysterious Lough Mask. There are many legends about Loughs in Scotland and Ireland, and Emily's story features a malevolent creature that lurks in the dark waters.
