Sample text:


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.



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.
