" THE ASTRONAUT " Is the first of my poems, and here are a few of the verses:

"I can be an astronaut
And blast off to the stars.
I can circle Jupiter
And even land on Mars. ...
... I'll fire my retro-rockets
And back to earth I'll fly...
Because Mom says it's time for lunch
And we're having pizza pie.

Later on this afternoon
I may blast off again,
Because I can do anything
Whenever I pretend."

R   &   R

featuring the best music of the big band era,

Broadway, and light jazz

"Whenever I Pretend" Books of Original Poetry

This is a delightful collection of ten poems (so far) to read to your children.  All the poems allow a child's imagination to grow, and all the poems end with the line, "Because I can do anything whenever I pretend." I am so proud of my wife's collection, I recommend it to you, and --- when have I ever lied to you? 

Price: $10

Thank You,
