Dreamer’s Land Draft-Childrens storybook attempt #1, parts 1 and 2 of 5

Open Window

Hello, I am

William, Yes Will I am,

Hello.

Oh, blanket of stars,

Oh, bed of sand!

Sleepy I am,

let’s go.

I know a land.

Shhhhh.

A far away land.

Shhhh.

Over the ocean.

Shhhh.

A Dreamer’s land.

Take my hand,

I’ll show you this land

of dandelion clovers and pecan ants

of silver sloths and candied clams

of cockeyed kisses

where echos land.

I know this land,

Give me your hand,

Here comes sandman,

Say Goodnight,

Say Hello,

to Dreamers Land.

Through the Blue

Smell the salt

Squeeze the sea

Waves hug back

so lovingly.

Chase a smile

in a submarine

we’ve set sail

on a moon-bounce leap.

No home for fear

No need to run

In dreamers land

oh, wondrous one.

I trust you

and you trust me

Look in the ocean

that navy sweep

see your reflection

blur into me.

Canoe boat frowns

float upside down

ear grin ear

doubts dissapear

No pouts on port

of Dreamland, dear.

Yes Dreamland, we near.
“The Tyger” by William Blake

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright

In the forest of the night,

What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare sieze the fire?

And what shoulder, and what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? and what dread feet?

What the hammer? and what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? What dread grasp
Dare it’s deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile, his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright,
In the forest of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?
