MY DAD IS A SAILOR
My dad is a sailor.
He took off to the sea
In a pretty sailboat
Sailing away from me
My dad is a sailor,
And when he’ll be back
Shells, stories and kisses
He’ll bring me in his sack
Captain, I dreamt I was a steam boat
And when I climbed aboard
Raising my flag and I started to float
Towards the unexplored
A clearly happy rainbow
Lent its colors to the prow
And on the stern, some butterflies
Dozed on flowers till the sunrise
The holds are fully loaded
Of chocolates and toys
For all the children devoted
Whether they’re girls or boys
At starboard many puppets
And a bold puppeteer,
My steamboat’s always full
Of purest love and cheer.
THE FOUNTAIN IN MY PARK
There is a fountain in my park
It sparkles even in the dark
Fish can be seen
Since the water’s so clean
Swimming together and saying “Hello”,
While my paper sailboat
Sails smoothly with a gentle blow.
