One warm autumn night I drifted to sleep,
I heard an almighty car horn beep,
I fell into a deep dream which took me far,
There I stood on a pile of golden leaves,
An enormous gush of wind turned into a light breeze.
In the distance stood a creature,
A unicorn with wings,
My heart melted into excitement,
My eyes gleaming,
I hopped onto the unicorn and off I went...
I ended up in a tent,
On a planet in a galaxy,
The magenta and teal surroundings gave me joy,
In the shadows of space a fairy came,
It was so tame,
A wiggle of her wand
Made me unaware of the beyond.
