Dreams

Last night I flew in outer space

I flew so fast and far.

An alien spaceship tried to chase

Me round a shining star.

 

Last night I had a pair of wings

But still I couldn’t fly.

I had to watch as other things

Like chairs went floating by!

 

Last night I helped a dragon with

A roar that had no fire.

I gave it chilli peppers

And watched the flames shoot higher.

 

Last night I found some magic shoes

Which made me feel so tall.

I jumped so high I couldn’t lose

When I played basketball.

 

Last night I painted my whole town

In yellow, blue and red.

It looked as if a circus clown

Had coloured it instead.

 

Each night I curl up in my bed

Excited to find out

What I will be inside my head

What my dreams will be about.
