The Recipe for Dreams

I’ve heard of boys made of puppy tails
And a drink made of chocolate topped with cream
I’ve often seen girls made of sugar and spice
But what is the recipe for dreams?

I imagine that dreams have some sugar
And also milk chocolate as well
I’m sure that dreams have some fantasy 
But where do you find that for sale?
They must contain some fairy dust
But some say that doesn’t exist
Although if fairies and magic aren’t really real
Then how could dreams still persist?

I’ve found it! I’ve found it!
The recipe for dreams!
The first is imagination.
Just add this to sleep
And blissful thoughts
Then taste-test your own creation

    This is quite a delightful rhyme, Rosie!! Enjoyed learning how dreams are "conjured" through the imagination coupled with blissful thoughts. Best wishes, Carolyn
