    In the Land of Imagination

    I wrote this ....this afternoon (12-14-12). Hope you enjoy it.

    In the land of imagination
    (c) Vickey Stamps

    In the land of imagination, we sometimes, as children play
    sitting aside the cares of day, as to bed we go and lay
    no matter what the age we are, we can still like children be
    and hug our dolls or drive our trains and clap our hands in glee



    For in our dreams, it matters not, the aches and pains of life
    In the land of imagination, we are free from pain and strife
    In sleep we run on youthful feet, to greet the days of old
    Reviewing times of long ago, when we were young and bold



    When Mama and Papa guided us, we learned to laugh and play
    Teaching us of right and wrong, putting discipline in each day
    Loving and smiling was common. We found it a good thing
    They knew we would need all of that, for what life soon would bring



    We'd run to be first on a tire swing, or a swim at the swimming hole
    For morning would come fast enough, when adulthood was the goal
    So Trains, stay on your happy track, and toot a joyful sound
    Little girls grab your dolls. Take a ride, as the wheels go round and round



    For all too soon, we'll be grown-ups, and face another day
    Boys can be conductors and yell out .... "Get aboard! I say"
    Yes, in the land of imagination, we can become children once again
    And through a hurried night of sleep, we run, we laugh, we grin.

    Thanks so much for all the comments. I am so glad you liked it. A dear friend had a graphic she emailed to me. She asked me to write a short something real quick to go with it. She always takes my short stories and story/poems ...adds music and graphics and sends it out to an e-mail list she keeps of people that enjoy reading what I write. It goes out as an email with my name on it as the author. If you want to be added, send me a PM and I will give you my email address.

    Hugs and thanks again.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Wonderful! Have you thought about self-publishing? I hope you have kept originals of every thing you have every done. I also hope you are copyrighting your works.

    thanks Nana about self-publishing and I've often wished I could . It is far too expensive. Appreciate all folks say here about my writing.

    You are welcome and thanks for the words. God Bless and Merry Christmas to you and yours. Does your antivar represent something you made??? Very pretty. Do you love butterflies (ID??) as I know I do. I'd love to someday have a butterfly quilt, but doubt that will happen anytime soon.

    Thanks for the reply. Hugs to all.
