Divine Rides on Elephants

Divine rides on elephants
A child scribbled in her book
And rode her imaginary friend
On winding, elegant roads
Paved with gold
Greeted Dorothy and her friends
Observed Little Bo Peep and her sheep
Played a little fiddle with a cat
Daydreamed with Little Miss Riding Hood
Built houses with the three little pigs
Ate with Little Miss Muffet
Scolded the boy who cried wolf
Before she sailed away home like a kite in the wind
