A Bed Time Story Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

A Bed Time Story

Rating: 4.8

Once upon a time
Once upon a dream
Once upon a heart break
Once uppon a tear
The world closed down.
Where were all the fairy god-mothers?

Dorothy, short, sweet and to the point. Where have all the fairy godmothers gone? I don't think they allotted me one. If they did she lost her way. Lovely little poem. Thanks for sharing it. David

Delightful reading. Once upon a time does envisage bedtime, but this ends up to be a wake up call.

You have this talent for deriving the maximum output from minimum input. It's real magic at work.

Cute little poem with a poignant question. I like it. However, one of the UPON words has an extra P.
