You are the twinkle in the life of elephants and blue giraffes. You conjure them up in your sleep and give them lots of ginger treats. Perhaps you ride on lion's backs and hear of secret planned attacks on zebra homes and wallabies. Perhaps you even hear them sneeze. Maybe you hop in your canoe and race the river otters too to find the crocodile flower and taste the kumquat, small and sour. I think that all your dreams are true A red-backed snail with one slug shoe. A butterfly who sells perfume and marbles played in moth cocoons. Bubbles blown by flying fish and riding them to wherever you wish. A swirl of purple pearly walls to protect all of your lemur calls. A thousand sunset’s burn below you. A serenade from Him that knows you. You dream in delicate patterns deep of animals you're sure to keep And care for in the paradise You'll feed the parrots coconut rice. and scrub the algae turtle's back while he chews on a lettuce snack. You'll nestle in the wild bears den and help them call the salmon friend. It's quite a sight to comprehend A dream to make our dreaming end...
