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.
I’ll remember then
to think wonderful things.

And the starry sky
outside my window
will look more inviting
when it’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… 🙂

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