Rose and Twinkle Toes
Rose and Twinkle Toes
A long, long time ago (it seemed anyway)
and her cat Twinkle Toes were dreaming
it was a wonderful fairy tale dream of a lovely house.
The house was painted a lovely shade of sky blue;
(inside too) and rested on top of a high cliff
and a huge flower garden grew
and a fairy twinkling girl lived there too.
Rose and Twinkle Toes played all day long running
and jumping with the fairy
until it seemed to Rose that
had been in this dream
for a very very long time,
although a diet of jelly beans was delightful
and they loved the little fairy.
Rose and Twinkle Toes really did long for home
and sleeping in their little attic room
under a pink blanket till morning
and a new day ... (Oh Twinkle Toes I miss home ! Don't you?)
But here in dreamland
every day is beautiful and sunny
with never a cloud ever so
Rose decided to go on a journey (to find home)
and with Twinkle Toes following they left
the pretty house on the cliff and the
garden and fairy far behind.
They met many strange and odd creatures
that said hello
and the scenery was amazing yet
there is no place like home
(as Dorothy would say).
Then a south wind sent them in a twirl.
It blew away the blue house the garden
(and maybe the fairy) Rose and Twinkle Toes,
were tumbling and pages of books flew by and books
and Rose held Twinkle Toes to her heart.
Then, Rose found herself in her attic room
and Twinkle Toes was sleeping on the bed
Rose whispered . . .
Twinkle be careful what you wish for!
