“What Happens In The Night”

by Zoe Beheshti

Age 9, Grade 3



When the moon will rise

And the stars will shine

Many people will whisper

“Star light, be mine.”


But what’s going on?

What’s behind what it seems?

Have you seen what comes next?

The answer is dreams.


When the moths fly around

During the darkest of night

As we lay in our beds

Our imagination takes flight.


Dragons and witches

And fairies and gnomes

Maybe small orphans

Looking for homes.


Dreams can be exciting

And frightening too.

They can be imaginative

Or based on something true.
