Beyond the wall,
beyond the street,
a shadow land
where dreamers meet,

a hidden cove of make-believe,
a come-on-in and never leave--
beyond the bonds of neighborhood,
a bluebell carpet in the wood.

Wow! This is the kind of place every single kid needs. Ok, who am I kidding, because every single adult needs this place too. Sigh.

Thanks, all, for hiding out
in the bluebells with me...
