Dear Peter Pan

I need your help,
the crocodile is getting close.
Time just seems to disappear
even on ho hum days.

Please send Tinker Bell
to flit round my head.
Iโ€™ll remember then
to think wonderful things.

And the starry sky
outside my window
will look more inviting
when itโ€™s my turn to fly.

    Wow you got all this from that simple prompt? What a wonderful poem and throw back to childhood as revisited by an adult grasping after that storybook magic… ๐Ÿ™‚

      So glad you like it. I loved watching Mary Martin in the originally televised Peter Pan!
