The apples were larger
Their colours were brighter

The Poui was pinker
And oh there goes a flower yellower

The Lady smiled a serene smile
And all was un-stirred for miles and miles

The cats meowed and stretched
Paws manicured and clipped

No I'm not a cat lover
I sought to tell her

So how did you get here she sighed
I might have automobile-d in I lied

Be this Egypt
Land of hieroglyphics

For someone had written on the wall
Just behind the Season of Fall

Be there love be there peace
Be there dreams but let them be sweet

For Cinderella you see, is a star
She shines in nighttime near and far

Holding wishes ever made
And they never ever fade

Though the fog of dawn
May sometimes let her yawn
