By James L. Rust & Sharon Coe I have a dream house I see in my mind. I go there quite often, It's one-of-a-kind. Enter my dream house, I'll show you around. I'm sure you'll find something That's yet to be found. ..Welcome! My dream house is painted All purple and green, It's spotted and striped, With aquamarine. My dream house has many Hard wooden floors With flowers and trees Sprouting up through the boards. Red grass grows a staircase Rising up to the next floor To tunnels and caves With thirty-six doors ..So I climb up. Thirty-six doors Like a TV show game, Which one should I choose, They're not all the same. From thirty-six doors I must pick only one. It makes all the difference, Determines the fun. Five looks promising, So what would you do? I stare at nineteen, But open thirty-two ..So I leap in. Weird cats jump around Through door thirty-two. They dance and pirouette Like a circus or zoo. There are parrots and pigeons Yes, birds of all kinds, One Andean condor, An extremely rare find. Some creatures below Make a watery stew, There's sharks, squids and whales, I see them, don't you? Enough of the animals, I want something new! I stride through the hallways Find nicknacks and odd things, Translucent moon bubbles Tied together with strings. I slide down to the kitchen Amidst cooking machines, Ovens and, toasters and blenders, They grind and they scream. Each one churs, whines and bakes Such marvelous treats, An incredible spread, A phenomenal feast ..So I eat and I EAT. I stroll to a blue room, The shower is there. I try goos and shampoos Special cremes on my hair. I climb to the attic, Reach in through the dark. Something starts BUZZING! It alights with a spark. I pull my hand back, Spin around and I race Plunge down the steep stairway Away from THAT place, ...panting. Oh, the basement is next, And it's frightening, too! Are there monsters inside. And ghosts that shout BOO? I flip on the light The room's empty and bare, My fear disappears, I've avoided that scare. ...Still, I tiptoe away! Ascending more steps To my room I retreat. I come here most often When I want to meet... Heroes and Pirates, Aliens and Crooks, They live on the shelf Inside of my books ...AndI read lots! All of these things Can be found in my home, But it's time to move on Soon I won't be alone. Last in my dream house, A waterfall falls. Racing down in a kayak I rush through the halls ..and I splash! Into a large pool Today's landing place, Tomorrow will be different, Perhaps outer space. That is my dream house, Until six o'clock When Mom comes from work And keys open the lock. She asks as she enters, "How was your day?" My answer to her, "It was okay" ...and I smile. Copyright © 2009 MightyBook, Inc. All Rights Reserved
