Poem for children about dreams…

I Dreamed a Dream

I dreamed a dream in bed last night,
Of places most bizarre.
Of ponds of liquid lemon pie,
And ducks that played guitar.

Of perfect picture puzzle paths,
And grass of jellybeans.
Of crumpet homes and candy gnomes,
Such things I’d never seen.

Of glinting, misty marble stars,
And clouds of thick eclair.
Of crayon boats and biscuit goats,
A weird and strange affair.

I flew past trees of centipedes,
And over fondant hills.
Past eight-leg cats and purple rats,
A world so full of thrills.

I dived beneath a soapy lake,
Through plastic kelp and Bream.
And swam with rainbow octopus,
Past shores of clotted cream.

And down below the treacle waves,
I spied a feathered bee.
But with a start I woke to find,
My pillows eating me!

I’ve always been fascinated by dreams, the meanings behind them and how creative our mind can get without us even realizing. I know a lot of kids have troubles with bad dreams and nightmares, which is why I created our first personalized book, “Your Child in Dreamland.” This personalized storybook was based on the idea that you usually dream about what you were thinking about before going to bed. It always worked for me, so I would always tell my son Anthony to think of things that make him happy and maybe he would dream about them. The Dreamland book is a personalized adventure book with lots of creative scenes, all ideas that my son had when trying to fall asleep at night. The book is a special and unique personalized gift for children ages 2-10.

I found this poem when researching dreams, on this adorable website  http://www.fizzyfunnyfuzzy.com/  It is a great website with cute children’s poems! Make them laugh and smile with this poem about dreaming.
