Apple Pie Dream

October 23, 2017

I brought an apple pie to bed
And set it down beside my head.

And when I fell asleep that night
The apples in the pie took flight.

They sailed up to the smiling moon
Who ate them with his starry spoon.

He sprinkled them with sugar stars
And gave one to his best friend, Mars.

It’s no use taking pies to bed
Unless the moon has first been fed.
