A poem for children

I want to sail upon a boat,
across the ocean, blue, I'll float.
I'll visit places far away
Where day is night and night is day.

Places I've only seen in my dreams,
With white sandy beaches and coconut trees.
Places where faces are different from mine.
Oh won't I have such a wonderful time!

Places where pirates once buried treasure,
where rich and famous now come for leisure,
and in the blue waves I'll surf and float.
The places I'll sail away to in my boat.

I'll play Robinson Crusoe, alone on an isle,
or smugglers in caves, hiding loot for a while,
I'll eat lots of foods that I don't know exist
and wake in the morning to spooky sea mists.

I want to sail upon a boat,
to exotic places I want to float,
I have to wait, but I'll be able to when
I've had lots of birthdays and aren't only ten!

That was very cute. It would make a great idea for a children's book! :-) April

Nothing like a child's dreams, they are what makes the world go round!
