Shel Silverstein quotes

Do a loony-goony dance 'Cross the kitchen floor, Put something silly in the world That ain't been there before.
If you are a dreamer- come in, If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, A hope, a pray-er, a magic-bean-buyer, If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, For we have some flax-golden tales to spin, Come in! Come in!
