All aboard (a song for Bel)


My jumbled world of limbless dolls, of summer heat and mistletoe,
is always just the same.
My garden is a universe where all my dreams are made
of floppy hats and ballet shoes, a spotted dog and rhyming tunes
("Tommy says hello"),
and it seems for all the world just like an ordinary day.

"All aboard!"
the station whistleman has spoken to us all;
and I know it's hard to fight against his will.

My sister comes from playing school and Daddy brings the afternoon,
it's always just the same;
we take the dog down to the fields and let him loose to run amongst the hay.
The evening's full of dinner smells, with silver bells and cockle shells...
Why do things have to change,
when it seems for all the world just like an ordinary day?
