Hi, I have a poem I made a while ago. Don't know if it will be of any use in your daughter's book, but she's free to use it:
A Spell to make the world a better place:
I cast a spell to change the world
to change the voices of all to be heard
The world got loud and everyone fought
Everyone had the words of hate in thought
I cast a spell to change there minds
to daffodils and daisies and all things kind
The world went silent, there was nothing to discuss
Nothing to change, no need for fuss
I cast a spell to change things white
So only one kind ruled the Earth at night
but things got boring and very bland
so I put back the colours in life's plan
The last spell I cast was the most preferred
A balance of nature meant everyone had the chance to be heard
they just had to find out that the problems they faced
didn't have the answer of only demons, angels or only one race.
I wish your daughter well with her book. I will happily give an account on my life with CF. But I might not be the best person for it, as you will end up with something which could be likened to the length of an essay:P
