It was a hot day out in the sun
So I thought I'd get some gardening done
But wait, what was that high in the sky?
An eagle and a unicorn were flying by
The eagle and the unicorn did collide
As the unicorn landed down by my side
'Oh no,' said he, 'I've hurt my knee.'
'Don't worry,' said I, 'you'll soon be fine.'
'Won't you come and let me take a look
You can have a rest while I do my best
Maybe you can read a book.'
Soon it was too late for him to fly
Out into the dark, dark night sky
'You can sleep here by my side.'
'If you're sure,' he said
'Then tomorrow I'll take you for a ride.'
In the morning we flew higher and higher
To a place far away called Candy Tower
It was great fun but it had to end
As the unicorn flew me round the bend
Next thing I knew away he flew
As I woke it was clear it was once upon a dream.
