AN ALPHABY FOR MY BEAUTIFUL DREAMER

"Commended" by the Margaret Reid Poetry Prize, 2010.


Ask me why I tell you this tale
Because you need to know my little one
Children have souls that can know without knowing
Dear ♫ baby mine,♫ I love you too much or just
Enough, to tell you what you must not
Forget for as long as you need to remember
Get the shield of Hercules
Hire Cinderella’s coach
Instant message Peter Pan to get here quick
Junior’s ready for a bedtime story
Know this my love that
Love conquers all
Mastodons, witches, pirates, and all
Never fear when Spiderman is here
Only believe.
Perhaps I should tell you
Quixote won
Ready
Steady
Tonight
Under the
Veil of night
We will dispel the myth
Xactly at the stroke of twelve that
Your dreams are locked in
ZZZZZ’s and are after all just dreams
