Pure Imagination - Poem by Roald Dahl

Come with me and you'll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you'll see
Into your imagination

We'll begin with a spin
Trav'ling in the world of my creation
What we'll see will defy
Explanation

{Refrain}

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world, there's nothing to it

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly wish to be

{Refrain}

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly wish to be

    'There is no life I know
    To compare with pure imagination
    Living there, you'll be free
    If you truly wish to be' - loved this deep thought on pure imagination.

    From Roald Dahl, was expecting something humourous- -
    But this is a poem most poets can relate to!

    With his original thinking,
    Mr.Dahl,
    Has opened up for so many a world
    Of their own imagination.

    This world is a place which shows you glimpses of what you perceive and wish to see or imagine. This poem takes u on that journey. (Report)Reply
