I bought this book for all the littles in my life. I was blown away at the illustration and the writing. Made me cry a little bit!!
A Journey of Imagination
" They say there are no dragons left
And that’s the way it seems.
To find them you must visit
The land of waking dreams.
You don’t need to search for secret doors
Or magic words to speak.
Your imaginings will carry you
Anywhere you seek.
And the ordinary world
Will never guess where you have gone
To chase your wondering, wandering heart
Into the place beyond.
Or the beyond may come to you
Dressed up in a disguise.
Is it the wind that moves the clouds?
Or a dragon as he flies?
A tiny seaside kingdom
Might grow beneath your gaze…
As creatures ancient as the sea
Rise on enchanted waves.
In a place of hushed and quiet things…
You might hear a phoenix call.
Or in the pattering of raindrops…
Jack-a-loping paws may fall.
In a hall of stones and echoes
Around the corner’s bend…
Two nimble-footed unicorns
Meet two brave-hearted friends.
So listen very closely
As you read of all these things.
Is it the whispering of pages…
Or the sound of griffin wings?
And when you leave, you learn the thing
That all day dreamers learn:
When you leave the realm of magic beasts,
They wait for your return.”
