My Latest Delight

by Shel Silverstein

If you are a dreamer, come in.

If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,

A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…

If you’re a pretender, come sit by the fire,

For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.

Come in!

Come in!

Shel Silverstein writes wonderful books of poems for children.  My first and second graders were always delighted to listen to and learn them.  I have never seen this one before - and I'm delighted.
