jack and jill

 My Mom read me nursery rhymes
as in her womb I slept
and  in my dreams they come alive
in color and in depth

My dreams begin with Jack and Jill
as down the hill he takes a spill
then I dream  of   Miss Muffet
scaring a spider  from  his web and tuffet

I even saw Mary  and her little lamb
as she pushed him in a pram
And in the fullness of the moon
I dream of dishes  dancing with a spoons

But the best dream of all
is that of being born
and looking into the loving eyes of Mom
while Dad and sis lovingly look on
