Can you remember? The day we found the magic faraway tree In the enchanted woods… Met a lot of fairy creatures With their blinky blonky moods… Once we sailed through the sea To the amazing Kirrin island With the George and her fellows Spent the most mysterious days Of our childhood…. How do we forget? The freaking days we spent At the St. Clare’s college Got a chance to escape Then, trapped in a mystery Always… Once we were members of the Secret seven gang We tasted that food… They brought everyday Together we dove deep Into adventure seas…
George, Julian, Anne, Dick, Timmy, Peggy, Nora, Mike, Jack, Moon face, Saucepan Man, and Silky the Fairy were the characters we loved most. Enid Blyton was the novelist of our childhood. I think Blyton’s books are the children’s favorite ones in the last few decades. She drowned us in an ocean of mystery, joy, and friendship. I think she may have been blessed by everyone who lived in her mystery world. Thanks, to her for making our childhood a wonderful one.
