“If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
― Shel Silverstein,
“Listen to the mustn’ts, child.
Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts,
Listen to the never haves,
then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be.” ― Shel Silverstein
I’ve made me a moon-catchin’ net
And I’m goin’ huntin’ tonight,
I’ll run along swingin’ it over my head,
And grab for that big ball of light.
So tomorrow just look at the sky
And if there’s no moon you can bet
I’ve found what I sought and I finally caught
The moon in my moon-catchin’ net.
But if the moon’s still shinin’ there,
Look close underneath and you’ll get
A clear look at me in the sky swingin’ free
With a star in my moon-catchin’ net. ~ Shel Silverstein
“She had blue skin and so did he. He kept it hid and so did she. They searched for blue their whole life through. Then passed right by and never knew.” ~ Shel Silverstein
