Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

my rendezvous with my childhood hero!
my rendezvous with my childhood hero!
(36 lines)

You were my pretend playmate,
when I was just a kid,
And we hung out together,
just like good buddies did!

You were a little older\
I didn’t know it then;
we had our tea together,
you used to call me “Jen.”

I read a book about you
and got to know you well.
Admired you so much
and thought that you were swell!

Now that I’ve grown older,
and now that you are queen,
I think you’re just as charming
as when you were a teen!

We used to have tea parties,
with all my little toys;
We’d play like they were real,
although they made no noise.

You helped me not be lonely,
back when I had no friend.
You were my secret best-bud;
no one could comprehend!

Now that we’re both maturing—
some might just call you old,
You’ve shown and I’ve suspected
that you’ve a heart of gold!

So with our day “together,”
though it’s just in my mind,
We’ve had the most elegant fun
that I will ever find!

We’ve sipped our tea politely,
enjoyed our petits fours,
Enjoyed the English countryside
--but had our fun indoors!
