One night while I was sleeping
I had a strange surprise
I felt myself drift away
And saw a magic garden right before my eyes.
It was magical but frightening
So I squeezed my sister's hand
There were feathery birds
And dancing fairies throughout this gleaming land.
We both slid down a grassy slope
Then everything went dark
I found myself in a lonely cave
And saw we'd been spread apart.
Through the gloomy cave, I crept
And saw a bottle lying there
I picked it up and looked inside
But spilt it everywhere.
I felt extremely frightened
As bats circled around my head
The land started swaying
And I found I was safe in bed.
