Artistic concept by Jim Fidler
While all the other children played their silly games of hide and seek and trick or treat,
Her only desire was to walk on the moon.
Even when she had grown,
She would look, longingly,
From the window of her bedroom loft,
Up at her glowing heart's desire.
Then, one very frosty winter's day,
When the entire ocean had completely frozen over,
she thought she would just strap on her skates and have a go.
