Tales of Magic

Peter Pan and Fairy dust
Neverland, where love means trust
Of Captain Hook’s who roam the sky
And little boys who never die.

I followed Alice in the hole
Don’t be late was my first goal
Cheshire cats who disappear
Eating mushrooms without fear.

Off to see a wizard and a witch
Flying houses toss and pitch
Lions, tigers, bears oh my
Flying monkey’s in the sky.

Childhood stories in the night
Tales of magic give a fright
Flash light tents and boogie men
Watch when grown; get scared again.

    Your talent for bringing storybook characters to life in such an intriguing and meaningful way is awesome, Lena! Indeed, we can "get scared again." I saw Pinochio again as an adult and was absolutely terrified when he was swallowed by the whale. Awesome poem! Another one for my favorites! Love, Carolyn
