The Castle Dream

From the album In The Hospital Buy Now

by Bill Harley

- for children afraid to go to sleep


It was really strange, Peter. I dreamed I was standing on this road, and up ahead I saw this

castle. I don't know why, but I knew I had to walk towards it. So I started walking towards

the castle, and came across this old woman. She was sitting by the side of the road. She was

sitting there like she was having a picnic. She was very strange looking, too. She had this

gray cloak around her shoulders, spread out around her. She looked like a volcano with a

head on top.


She looked up at me and she said, "You're just in time for lunch. Now what do you have to eat?"


I said, "I don't have anything."


She said, "You must have something. What's in your pockets?"


Well, I reached in my pocket. I said, "I've just got this."
