“Come With Me”

All of the wonders of the world,

I am patiently waiting to see.

But for now I will wait, for now this pencil I will twirl.

This pencil will lead me to places I never thought could be.

Where will we go, what wonders will unfurl,

Will you stay ever so close beside me?

I wish to explore for I am a traveling girl.

These places you speak of, I wish to see,

Unimaginable places I tell you I can produce,

Whether it be past, present, or future time,

Perhaps we’ll conquer lands or maybe settle for a truce?

When you are ready, I’ll show you, just give me a sign.

To travel to frightening worlds, the kind you can induce,

What wonders we would see from any time line,

If we are afraid at anytime, lets climb a tree of spruce,

I cannot wait no longer for now is the perfect time,

And come with me to this world unexplored.

Where life is busy and fast paced,

But when time comes, we can break and catch some snores.

Don’t take too long, because now we are being chased,

Tarry no longer lets hurry, I do implore,

Time moves so quickly, we must make haste,

And when it is time to rest, I promise to not be bored,

I will run fast as the wind, of me the monsters will not taste,

For giving to the poor, and robbing the rich,

They are right on our trails, so run run run,

Hurry, for here comes the Shanking Witch!

No worries. We can escape with this harpoon gun,

The rich have never had to spend the night in a ditch’

I am so frighten, this is not fun,

I wonder if the wicked old witch was one of the rich,

So hurry to fire that gun, for I wish no more to run,

And flee to the open seas,

Where giant krakens are to fear.

We’ll clash and we’ll triumph so be at ease,

Can you hear that? The villagers cheer?

I wish to have calm seas if you please,

I heard the Krakens were sweet dears,

I wish there was a cooler breeze,

I think what you hear is not clear,

We are the heroes, you and I.

This is our adventure this is our story,

I was our guide, so now you give it a try.

Take me to your world, and all of its wondrous glory.

Heroes we may be, next time I want to fly,

Our travels were great, I told you not to worry,

I will take you to places where our trip will not go awry,

My world is filled with fairies, come now lets hurry.

“Hayden and Grandpa’s Jungle Trip”

Once upon a time, only yesterday I think,

Out in the yard before I could blink,

Grandpa and I went on a trip,

We were wading through the grass up to my hip.

Once in the yard the magic did start,

When through the mist the curtain did part,

Through time and space our trip did begin,

I was glad my Grandpa was also my friend.

When up with a start came the wind,

My heart started to race my life to defend,

What sounded like drums I thought I did hear,

I truly was hoping it was not a bear.

Grandpa held my hand and to my delight,

He held on tight and chased away my fright,

I became stronger because Grandpa was near,

I was not afraid of a silly old bear.

Grandpa pointed to what I soon saw was a deer,

I had nothing to fear with my Grandpa so near,

Now wasn’t that silly I thought to myself,

The sweet little deer was cute as an elf.

Soon the jungle we had to leave,

Grandpa said Grandma a story would weave,

Night was coming too quick see,

Tonight in bed there would be another trip for me.

“Blake and Hopper”

Blake woke up bright and early and jumped out of bed. The stars were still shining bright. “I have to get dressed quickly today,” He said aloud.

After he had dressed in his favorite purple shirt and his old blue jeans, he finished brushing his teeth and hair and then ran into the kitchen to eat his breakfast.

After breakfast, Blake asked his Mom if she would fix him a lunch. He wanted to have a picnic today with his new friend.”

“I have a new friend and he said he would meet me at my cave this morning. His name is Hopper Green-Frog and Daddy saw him yesterday too. May I go, please?”

Mom made his favorite peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. She also gave him a thermos of milk.

“Blake, I want you to promise me you will not leave our yard!” Blake promised his Mom as he ran out the back door.

Blake laughed as he ran into his new cave. When he went inside, he looked all around.

Hopper was nowhere in sight. Blake yelled, “Hopper where are you?”

All of a sudden, Hopper jumped up on a big rock and croaked, “Here I am Blake. I have been here, waiting for you. What shall we do today?”

Blake thought, and thought. “I know, we can go to the stream and pretend it is a big beautiful lake.” That was just what they did.

“Oh, Hopper” Blake said, “isn’t it a wonderful lake. Look over there, have you ever seen such a big and beautiful swan?”

“His name is Cygnus and he is the King of the Trumpeter Swans. I wonder what he is doing here, he seldom lets people see him. I have an idea, why don’t we just go and ask him.”

Blake and Hopper ran down to the lake as fast as they could.

“Hi Cygnus,” Hopper yelled. “Where are you going?”

“I was just coming to see if you and your friend would like to go for a ride around the lake with me?”

“Yes,” Blake and Hopper yelled at the same time.

Hopper introduced Blake and Cygnus to each other and they were on their way.

They saw all sorts of fun places where they might one day come back and investigate.

When they got to the far side of the lake, they saw a group of children playing on the shore.

“I am going to take a nap,” Cygnus said. “It is extremely tiring carrying extra weight on my back. Why don’t you play with them for a while?”

“Sure,” Blake replied, ” just call when you want to leave.”

Blake and Hopper ran off to play and King Cygnus put his head under his wing and went to sleep.

Hopper decided he wanted a swim and then to sun on a log for a while.

Blake ran to play with the children. After everyone told each other their names. There were many names to learn that day. Blake and the other children a wonderful time playing in the woods

Hide and seek was so much fun!

Blake laughed and laughed when it was his turn to be the seeker. Hide and seek was a lot more fun when there were a lot of children to find.

He was looking everywhere for his new friends. When he looked up in a big Oak tree, on every limb in the tree,Blake saw all the children trying to hide there. It was so funny that he just pointed up at them and started laughing!

“Look,” Blake yelled to the children that he had found already. “I found the strangest family of birds that I have ever seen.”

Everyone was laughing about the new bird family when Blake heard a trumpet sound coming from the lake.

“It’s time for me to go, that’s King Cygnus calling me.”

The children walked Blake to the edge of the woods, there they hugged him and said goodbye, each child asking him to return tomorrow.

As Blake and Hopper were telling King Cygnus all about their morning, Cygnus interrupted them and told them to look towards the shore.

In front of them was a beautiful lady swan and a chest full of treasure was on the bank of the lake.

The King introduced her to Blake and Hopper.

This is my wife, Queen Swen and she guards the fairy treasure from the evil trolls. They are afraid of her because her beautiful

song will turn them into rocks.”

“Did you ever have to turn any trolls into rocks before?” Hopper asked her.

“If you look down in the water, you will see hundreds of rocks. They all were once trolls.”

“Wow, I see them! Why don’t they learn to stay away? “Blake said. ”

“Now that is something we have wondered about for a long time,” replied King Cygnus.

“It was nice to meet you both,” Queen Swen said as they were leaving.

King Cygnus let them off in front of the cave entrance, under the shade of trees so thick that it looked like night; he swam away, with the promise of returning the following day.

After lunch, Blake and Hopper played King of the Hill. Blake was king for five whole minutes, then he lost his kingdom when Hopper jumped on him and they both tumbled down.

“Let’s play Hide and Seek; I want to try to find you,” Hopper told Blake.

They played for hours hiding from each other, climbing walls that had foot holds on them, running and hiding in the different rooms in the caves. They had so much fun that day.

When the sun went down and the stars started coming out, Blake built a campfire, so that Hopper would be warm and cozy for the night.

He told Hopper it was time for him to go home.

Blake climbed a tree to see if he could see any of the friends. that he had met that day.

He could see no one, so Blake got down from the tree and headed home.

Soon he could smell dinner cooking; he ran the rest of the way home.

Blake could hardly wait; he wanted to tell his Parents and Grandparents all about Hopper and King Cygnus.

“Hayden and The Strawberry Patch”

Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a beautiful little girl, named Hayden. She had long blond hair, blue-eyes and was three years old.

Hayden loved, her Grandparent’s and she often wanted to go to their house. She enjoyed having all the extra love and attention she received from Grandpa and Grandma.

One day, when she was playing in her room, she decided that she would ask her Mother if she could go see her Grandparents. “Mama, can I go to Grandpa and Grandma’s today?” Hayden asked.

“Not today honey.” Her Mother said, “but we can call them and ask if you can come this weekend.”

After Hayden’s Mama talked with Grandma on the phone, Mama told her, “Grandma said she and Grandpa, would love to have you over for the weekend.”

“Can I go now Mama, please?” Hayden said hopefully.

“No sweetheart today is Wednesday. I will take you Friday, when I pick you up from school.”

Hayden thought it was going to take forever for Friday to get there.

On Friday morning Hayden’s Mother said, “Do you know what today is?”

Hayden was so excited she could hardly speak.” It’s Friday,” she yelled with delight.

“Yes, and when I pick you up from school today we-“

“Then we go to Grandpa and Grandma’s house, right?” Hayden said as she interrupted her Mother.

The day seemed to go so slowly, as Hayden waited for two-o’clock. Then suddenly, she looked up and saw her Mother standing there. Hayden squealed aloud, it was finally time to go. She grabbed her Mother’s hand and pulled her towards the door.

“Let’s go Mama”. Soon they were in the car headed to Grandpa and Grandma’s house.

Hayden was quiet as they drove, she was thinking about the magic at her Grandparent’s house. She had tried to tell Mama about the wonderful magic that she enjoyed every time she went to her Grandparents house, but Mama could not really understand. That was all right with her; the only thing that truly mattered was that she understood, and she loved every minute of it. Magic was…, well just Magic. Then they were there.

Grandpa and Grandma were standing exactly where she had left them the last time she was here. They were even still waving at her.” See, she told her Mother, magic.”

“What is magic, Hayden?” Her Mother asked.

Hayden did not stop to answer her Mother; she ran to her Grandparents. Reaching up to kiss and hug her Grandmother, Hayden said, “Can we do magic now Grandma, please?

Grandma laughed and said, “In a little while my precious. Now run give Grandpa a big hug. We missed you so very much.”

After her Mother left, Hayden went inside the house with her Grandparents and the fun began. Everything was exactly where she had left it. Hayden loved her treasure chest and so she carried it to the dining room. While Grandma worked preparing dinner, Hayden and Grandpa played pirates, built things with her connects set, and they sang songs. Her favorite song was Lavender Blue and all three of them joined in singing it together.

Soon, the evening was over, it was time for her bath and then bedtime. Hayden really did not mind at all, for now the real magic would begin. She gave her Grandpa his hugs and kisses, told him goodnight, “I love you Grandpa.”

“I love you too my princess, goodnight, sleep tight…”

“Don’t let the bed-bugs bite.” Hayden finished the sentence as she hurried of to bed.

“Grandma, Can we watch “Kangaroo Jack” tonight?”

“Get into bed and we will watch the movie, then we are going to take a magical trip to the strawberry patch. How does that sound to you?”

“I love it,” she said as she kissed her Grandmothers cheek.

When the movie was over, the lights were all off, only then did the real magic occur. Grandma reached over, took Hayden’s hand into hers and said,”Close your eyes because we need them closed to find the Land of the Magic Strawberry Patch.”

In a soft voice, Grandma said. ”Once upon a time, there was a beautiful kingdom where only animals lived. The sky was always a beautiful azure blue with puffy white clouds that were smiley faces floating overhead. When you look up the clouds would wink at you.

The grass was an emerald-green and everywhere you looked, there were strawberry patches full of large, delicious, ruby-red strawberries.

Now there were many different kinds of vegetables, because all the animals needed food, but those strawberries were so wonderful that every animal in the kingdom ate them for desert.

That night Hayden and her Grandmother went to the Kingdom. They could go there because Hayden had her stuffed Rabbit, Bun-Bun, with them. The magic let them in.

When they walked over to the strawberries, they saw all the Rabbits’ sitting there eating strawberries.

Walking up to the family of rabbits, Grandma and Hayden both said hello to them.

“Please join us, have some of these delicious strawberries.” Mama rabbit said.

“Why thank you.” Grandma and Hayden replied.

Hayden was surprised to hear the rabbits talking, but when she laid her rabbit, Bun-Bun, down on the ground, he said, “It is about time we came here. Hi, Hopper Family,” Hayden was flabbergasted. Then Bun-Bun jumped up and started eating strawberries as fast as he could stuff them in his mouth.

When Hayden and Bun-Bun were full, they followed the Hopper kids to the stream and spent a long time playing in the water. The Children taught Hayden how to play Hop Scotch-bunny style, and she taught them the words to Lavender Blue and all her favorite songs.”

Grandma’s voice faded into the background and Hayden spent a magical night eating strawberries and playing in the strawberry patch with Bun-bun and hundreds of talking rabbits.

For tonight only, Hayden and Grandma must say, “The End.”

I took a trip with Mama,
We went to see my Grandpa,
To a place, she called the home,
And he lived there all alone,
Come sit with me, my sweet girl,
Then in his lap, I did curl,
Now darling don’t look so sad,
Truly, not all is so bad,
When you really want to play,
Even on a rain-soaked day,
When the clouds hide the sun,
And you want to have some fun,
Just travel to foreign lands,
Ride camels in distant sands,
Travel with the brothers Grimm,
With the Seven Swans you can swim,
There is a Secret Garden,
Mrs. Hodgson will let you in,
Let Jason take you to see,
The Golden Fleece in a tree,
How about a trip to Mars,
Just reach out and touch the stars,
There’s a man named Andersen,
Travel with him, you will grin,
To the Garden of Paradise,
Now, that trip was very nice,
Adventures in Wonderland,
Alice takes you by the hand,
Percy Jackson goes to school,
There he proves he is no fool,,
Fly the skies with Pegasus,
Mama will not even fuss,
There are many places to go,
Books are the way to make it so
