Dreams - by Nicholas Norton

A poem written for 5th grade class as part of a butterfly project:

By Nicholas Norton
September 7, 2006

As I sit there watching a butterfly
Flutter by,
I begin to wonder -
"What if I could fly?"
Oh, I know how my heart would sing
If I could take to the wing!

And I thought about all the wonderous things
I could do if I had wings.

But alas!
That dream will fade.

That's not the way I was made.

But wait!
Dreams can come true!

That's such a beautiful and simple poem. I bet the children will enjoy it.

God Bless.
