A Chapter by Debbie Barry

A poem about fantasy and imagination.




October 26, 1988

Little children,
Come with me.
Come to a world
Of love and beauty.

Come and live
In a world men lost
When they grew up
Long ago.

Little sisters,
Dream of elflings,
And courtiers
Of faerie blood.

Come to my world
Of magic wonders
Where unicorns
And sprites abound.

Little brothers,
Dream of glory

In the chivalry
Of old.

Come defend
A world of wonders
With gryphons,
And with warriors, bold.

Little children,
Please remember
A world men lost
So long ago.

Remember well
To keep it living
In children's minds
For ever more.
