We will build this city on ideas
On stories from our childhood
On inspiration’s glorious wings
Until our hearts arise
And sing
This library of wonder
For us and us alone
Our truest home

We will make our home on dreaming
Held within our inner eyes
We’re children eager for the prize
Imagination may bestow
So you and I can know
The greatness of the world
Beyond its earthly form
Beyond the storm

The stories that we share
Will take us there
Upon the words we fly
With no need to wonder why
Just this library of wonder
For us and us alone
Our truest home

About Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.
