Sample of verses:
"There were flutes of the finest silver,
tea sets made for a queen,
trains that somehow seemed alive,
ready to take us to the land of our dreams.
There were puzzles that defied solution,
dancing bears that never tired,.
There were mysteries and surprises,
all waiting to be admired."
