Monday's Child #13

 Moontalk

Every night I dream the sky
has stars and planets rolling by
like marbles, jostling on the ground.
They spin, around, around, around...
Then, my Dog, my Ted and I,
fling up our arms - and we can fly!
We travel out through wide, wide spaces
before we find the moon whose face is
green, but always full of fun. He smiles,
"So glad that you have come!"
Together then, we go exploring,
until we wake up in the morning!

  3. Thank you people - I may have a chance to read it to some kids soon, as Wordsouth have decided to try to organise a Saturday poetry reading for children, in the not too distant future, and have made a note of my name...
