~Sunday Poem!

"And Alice picked up the little cake and on it read,
'Be yourself.' 'How funny,' Alice thought, 'what else could I be!'"
by Lewis Carroll

Can You Imagine?
(For the Child in All of Us)

Can you imagine a world without witches,
A world with all people the same?
Where the only known dragons are hiding in books,
And children are terribly tame?
A world without magic would be sad indeed.

I cannot imagine the pain
Of having a world where there's no Santa Claus,
Where wizards are searched for in vain.
Can you imagine a world without spells,
That science and businesses run?
And think of the sadness a unicorn feels
When he no longer plays in the sun

Can you imagine a world without witches,
No elves, and no magical pools?
And can you imagine how dull it would be
If all that we had were the schools?

I cannot imagine a world without witches,
A world with no magical wand.
A world without beauty, or even a dream,
Or a wood sprite of whom to be fond

They say I should grow up and be more mature,
Like a normal adult ought to do.
But I'd rather, at night, go to dance with a witch,
And I'll bet that you feel that way, too.

How dull a world would be without witches and goblins and the creatures of our imagination. Lovely image.

Beautiful! Thank you for posting this - after a dreadful day at work, it reminded me that beauty still lives elsewhere.
