The Ghost of Helmshore Mill
Our composition from our trip to Helmshore Mill, based on a myth and written by the children accompanied by band members from The People Versus.
HELMSHORE MILLS TEXTILE MUSEUM
The devil-hole-man smelt smoke from the fire
He climbed higher and higher, then jumped on a pyre
That jumping man turned into a ghost
He had a pet flamingo who ate lots of toast
It was dark and it was dingy
Ghostly wails were wild and whingy
Deep down in the devil hole
Lingers a wicked, evil soul
Mysterious Mark was his name
He jumped when he saw the flame
He could have gone through the door
Instead, his legs hit the floor.
