In Praise of Childhood Dreams

As a little girl,
I loved Black Eyed Susans.
They were
the prettiest Flower
I could ever imagine
to see.
I hoped
some day
I would live
by Black Eyed Susans.
And I do.
When I was 5,
maybe 6,
I was on a
Children's Television Program.
I was asked
what I would
most like
in the whole world.
I firmly replied:
"A Banana Tree."
I don't have a Banana Tree,
but I still like Bananas.
