When You Wish Upon a Star


If I had a magic ladder
that could go very far,
I'd climb it all the way 
and pick myself a star.

I wouldn't keep it long -
for one day only,
a star away from the sky
might get very lonely.

But on that single day
and long into the night,
we'll share our hopes and dreams
and all will be alright.


Featured: Crafting with
my nephew.
