Flight Of Fancy - Poem by Dawn Ferrett

Our sofa was a spaceship.
We soared between the stars
Visiting distant planets
Like Jupiter and Mars.

My brother and I were astronauts
Dad was Chief Engineer
He'd power up the engines
Then through the heavens we'd steer.

We followed a passing comet,
Met some little green men,
Went to the edge of the universe
And all the way back again.

We travelled across the galaxy
Passed the Milky Way.
Even took tea with the Man in the Moon
And all in just one day!

Our sofa was a spaceship
That special afternoon
Oh! What a great adventure!
And over all too soon!

    I have often in childhood wanting a magic carpet so I could fly away. Your couch would serve the purpose just fine. Lovely thoughts of childhood. (Report) Reply

    A very good poem. Reminds one of Robert L Stevenson. Read mine - Flies Flies
