To Pigs that Fly and Beyond

this has to be our secret
we’ll wait till it gets dark
we have to be so quiet
we can’t wake mum and dad

~

when they’re asleep
we’ll sneak down the stairs
can’t make a noise
Sssshhhhh  don’t we dare

~

come down to the woods
where the elves call home
they are holding a party
they want us to come!!!

~

we’ll ride giant turtles
with ribbons for reins
eat gingerbread houses
and drive talking trains!!!

~

we’ll drink lemonade
from plastic tea sets
this party will be
the best party yet!!!

~

down in the forest with
elves and the fairies
inside the tree trunks
we’ll read magic stories

~

what fun we shall have
the things we can do
there’s even a woman
who lives in a shoe!!!

~

there are pretty pink pigs
we are able to ride
and a nice big house
that’s so pretty inside

~

a piper called Peter
who plays lots of tunes
and perhaps we can talk
to the man in the moon!!!

~

we’ll see fireflies
who light up the night
albatrosses who fly
and sing through the sky

~

merry-go-rounds
with bunnies that talk
elephants, ponies
and monkeys that squawk

~

there are lanterns and
cups that float in the stream
we can blow coloured bubbles
eat cake and whipped cream!!!

~

we must be so quiet
as we sneak down the stairs
to join in the party
after our prayers

~

we’ll eat ice-cream and jelly
and lollies too
the fun we will have
just me and you
