The Dream of a Child

Once upon a time
is the way a fairy tale begins
But this is once upon a time
long ago when I thought
that if I practiced magic tricks,
tried to converse like a ventriloquist
with a Raggedy Ann doll,
tossed two red rubber balls in the air,
practiced standing on my hands,
and "walked the dog" with my wood yo yo
I might be given a chance
to appear in the circus
-- at least one time
Later on I wanted to fly
like Peter Pan-- at least one time
