Yes, I've been down Storybook Road,
Long ago when I was much younger,
Turn right just past the Lake of Mirrors
You'll be glad cause it's so much fun there.
The people dress in colors like rainbows
And the music plays so sweetly all day,
While high on the hilltop one finds silence
It's no problem if you chose to steal away.
We all drank a golden brew cool hearty
That sent a tingle from your head to your toe
And we laughed so long & hard our sides hurt
As I look back I wonder why I had to go.
I recall the splendor of those sunlit days
How it seemed dreams somehow came alive,
On the cobbled streets of Storybook Road
Where it crosses Happiness Drive.
| Hey Dan, I dunno how come I missed your Storybook road...I'm glad I found it though, it's very good, the perfect metaphor for the land of dreams, away from the reality of the real world.|
Bloody good job, well done.

I absolutely love cobblestone streets. Great job here, Dan. You have given your inner child the space he needed. Read mine for a different slant, if you have time.|

I love that movie and this write was very good. It was short and very sweet and I really thought that the ending was a great way to close this piece! Nice job!
