It All Began With A Mouse

In many ways, I think I was fortunate in how I grew up.  I had many blessings.  One of these was that I must have visited Disneyland at least 100 times back when the park could be seen from main gate to every ride easily in a day’s time.

The other day, I was thinking about this and it led to a poem.

Haunted Mansion - Hidden Mickeys Ballroom of the Dead

It All Began With A Mouse
by Michael Romani

It all began with a mouse
That built a dream into a house
Hidden quietly on Main Street
Beside the candy shop's treats

It all began with that mouse
That built the house
That became a castle of dreams
Made as real as they seem

Wished upon a shining star
That traveled as fast as far
Building wishes into a kingdom
That from his heart did become

A place of magic for all children
Of every age that would transcend
Creating a smaller world for us all
Building bridges instead of walls
