I’m reblogging this in response to Fandango One Word Challenge today
Following on from my post A Cat’s Delight, here is another from 30 odd years ago
Dreams of Childhood Fantasy
When I grow up I’d like to see
A Knight in Armour rescue me
From a castle tower high
Beneath a moon and starlit sky.
A wicked witch would hold me there
In dark and dismal stale dank air,
He’d carry me away, set free
From this, a childhood fantasy.
As years progress, I’ll see the World,
My body tanned, hair bleached and curled,
See the sights, things strange and new,
I’ll be the envy of all of you.
Sail across the oceans wide,
Discover a continent on the new tide,
Conquer the land, name it after Me,
In this, another fantasy.
As time goes by, I’ll be a Queen,
In grandeur never before it seen,
With diamonds, pearls, more riches yet,
My teeth in purest gold be set.
