A butterfly dream
London L.

I dream I was a butterfly.  I would fly to a rose.
I would fly to a sunflower. I would fly over
a house.  I would fly over a zoo.
I would fly over some grass.  I would fly to some
lakes.  I would fly to a school.
I would fly to my butterfly house.
I would fly to a store.


I dream of animals
Ivan H.

I dream I can ride a komodo
dragon.  I dream tigers
were nice! I dream
blob fish are fast.
I would ride the komodo
dragon to New York City.

I dream of having a puppy

I dream to be an artist and a scientist.
I dream of a genie.

I dream for a kakashi costume.
I dream to have a kid.
I dream for a new pet.
I dream for a better life.
