He’s alone in his thoughts as he sits in class. His mind too full of wonder to focus on the task. “Wake up, says his teacher, you’ve got work to do.” “Science and math and a test or two.” But he never hears a word she says. He is lost deep in the fantasy inside his head. He dreams of a world far away Where he can laugh and play. Where girls and boys Can have all the candy and toys. Where dragons can fly And castles soar into the sky. Where monsters roar And eagles soar. Where there are no rules And never a day of school. That is where his mind is at, All day, in that chair he sat. But teacher don’t despair. For while homework he might not care. That boy who you scold Might be the one who changes the world.

On The Other Side

On the other side of the street
Is where we will meet.
secret garden trailWe will talk and play
And laugh through the day.
We will listen to sounds
And gaze at the clouds.

On the other side.

 What that side holds
 Nobody knows.
 It is full of wonder and lush,
 Tall trees and brush.

On the other side.

The water trickles through
As we hum a toon.
But as the day fades to gray
I know I can’t stay.

So I’ll see you again on the other side.
