“What shall we have for breakfast?”
Katie asked her Dad.
He said, “Let’s have something no one else
in the world has ever had.”
“How about a bowl of sunshine
soaked in morning dew ?
Or cookies made from rainbows
just for me and you.
We’ll drink from crystal goblets
filled with clear blue sky.
Roll clouds in sugar and cinnamon
then bake them into pies.
We’ll wash our hands and faces
in a gentle summer rain.
Then dry them on a warm spring breeze
as we walk home down the lane.”
“Isn’t that kind of silly?” Katie said at last.
“Well you never know until you try,” Dad said.
And they both began to laugh.
