The Poet in the Park surprisingly is non-other than Walt Disney, himself. We all know how talented he was. We all know how creative he was. We all know that he was a man that wore many hats. But, I didn’t know that he wore the hat of a Great Poet. His creativity went way beyond his imagination. His creativity spanned across the board. One day a long while ago I decided to write a poem about my favorite Disney Character, Cinderella. After I wrote it I put it aside for a few years until just this month when I learned that ” Uncle Walt ” had a hidden secret. I located some of his poetry. Following is a list of the Titles of his poems.
(Walter Elias Disney 12/5/1901- 12/15/1966)
“A Magic Kingdom”
“The Memories in the Characters”
“A Wish , Dream, A Magic Place “
“Disney World of Course”
The following poem is written by me:
“…………The Castle, The Kingdom”…………
The Castle is waiting
There’s no hesitating
To see what I came here to see.
The Kingdom awaits
I go thru the gates
The park is the thrill that I feel.
I came to enjoy
Like each girl and boy
The magic and to see if it’s real.
Walking down Main Street
The walk that I walk
The crowds there they signal to me.
That there’s no other place
Here on this earth
Or anywhere I’d rather be.
So I don my blue cape
Magic wand in my hand
And It’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!
As I make my way
To the Castle today
I’ll do what I came here to Do !
Cinderella’s my Fave
She’s all the Rave
My attraction to her is so real.
She’s truly a star
A Beauty by far
The Queen of the Castle I feel!
