Monday's Child and Kristin's Giveaway...

One Day

I just don't want to be here
I'd rather be at sea
Sailing over the oceans
a pirate's life for me.

Or maybe the king of the land
With a room full of gold
a crown upon my head
People doing as they're told.


No,
Better still a race car driver
In my red car I go so fast
Wheels go spinning, aways winning
Never ever coming last.

But...
then again an astronaut
In my spaceship traveling far
Pressing buttons, floating, flying
Finally reaching that bright star.

But since I'm only seven
Here at school I'll have to stay
Keep on dreaming of what I'll be
One day.....one day!

By Mandy Snow

Kristin said...

WOW! WHAT a WONDERFUL poem!!! I love what you have done and I love his attitude - only 7 years old! I would not normally want to read this until after mine is done, but I don't think I'll be able to do it this week. So I got to treat myself! Headed out of town, talk soon and THANK YOU so much for including the giveaway picture - it is so nice of you. Please comment twice for an extra chance if you haven't done so already :) xoxo

Mandy, just lovely - you must have really felt this one especially with 4 boys in your house. How they dream of being and doing - so much to do - thinking that time never gets here - then it is here and they are grown and off to see the world.. Thank you for a treat into a boys dream world...I really loved this picture, glad you did too..

Love looking at the world through the eyes of a child....bkm

Happy Tuesday!
