A book

The day before yesterday
I got a book from my daddy
pink, yellow and so many colors,
and from  its third page flowed
a brook full of fishes, colorful
and from the fifth page grew
a blue sky so vast, clouds danced.

It took me to castles and mountains,
I met unicorns and angels,
stars came to me with lullabies,
I wished upon shooting stars.                                            
Elephants, lions, monkeys and deer,
they danced and slept with me,
friends and dreams and colors of hope.

The day before yesterday
my daddy gave me a book,
a book with a whole world ,
to me to grow up….
