I had a dream one evening,
As I tucked myself to bed.
As my memories swished quickly,
I wondered where I'd heard.
A jungle, a palace, or perhaps in my school
Or would I kick my flipflops off and dive into a pool?
I landed with a flip in the sky,
Realising that I was able to fly!
I did a somersault, then a backflip,
Then headed down for a relaxing dip.
Below I saw an amazing sight!
Wizards and witches of every height.
They flew, they walked, they practised spells
And they kept owls and cats in little cells.
But that, I saw, was not all of it.
For standing proudly in a giant pit
Were five tall towers right before me
Something I had to explore, had to see!
I stepped through open doors into a hallway,
My eyes blinded from fake sun rays,
But my eyes still saw a terrifying sight,
Two guards, standing noble, in black and white.
'Stay still,' they said, pointing a finger at me,
This was definitely something I didn't want to see.
I tried avoiding them,
But they zapped my head.
But by then, I was already safe in bed.
