sandra Harper: I Dreamt a Cardboard Rocket Poem

I dreamt a cardboard rocket ...

a poem by Sandra Harper, St Swithun’s Nursery manager

I dreamt a cardboard rocket
It took me to the moon
I was gone for over seven years
And settled there quite soon

The aliens there were friendly
And helped me build a house
We made it out of moon rocks
And I lived there with my mouse

But after a while I got homesick
And began to miss old earth
So I got back in my rocket
And shot down to the turf!
