: Does anyone know where this phrase (the pitter patter of little feet) comes from? Is it part of a quotation or longer phrase?
: Houston, TX
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, "The Children's Hour"
Between the dark and the daylight,
When the night is beginning to lower,
Comes a pause in the day's occupations,
That is known as the Children's Hour.
I hear in the chamber above me
The patter of little feet,
The sound of a door that is opened,
And voices soft and sweet.
