The Magic Bus

The magic bus
made many stops.
Up in the air it went.
Gatwick, then Stanstead,
in the blink of an eye.
Here was a bus that was meant to fly.
In airports, through London, the Number 10.
Ends up in my son’s bedroom,
fetching and carrying passengers far,
through child-like dreams,
imagined through
a forest of forgotten
memories of my own.
Lying on the carpet,
playing with his big red bus
in the living room.
