Dancing Animals
Daniel M.

I dream that animals
could talk to me
I dream that animals
dance I dream
that Christmas
is every day
I dream
that it snows
but is not cold at all


Jenesis A.

I dream I could eat all the cookies
I dream I had a lot of toys
I dream I had a castle
I dream I had a dog
I dream I was a rainbow
I dream I was a cat
I dream I was a dog
I dream I was a pig
I dream I had a big sister


I Dream
Melissa R.

I dream of flying
I dream I have a unicorn
I dream I am small
I dream I have power
I dream I have a star

I Dream

I dream of chicken
I dream of soup
I dream of eating pizza
I dream of eating ice cream


Timayah B.

I dream I fly all the way up
I dream I puck up the boat
I dream I am a frog
I dream I can jump really high
I dream I can have laser eyes


Anastacio R.

I dream birds fly out of trees
and into a bird tornado
