The Snail's Dream


The Snail's Dream is featured in Herford's whimsical collection, The Bashful Earthquake & Other Fables and Verses, published in 1898.
The Snail's Dream
A snail, who had a way, it seems,
Of dreaming very curious dreams,
Once dreamed he was—you’ll never guess!—
The Lightning Limited Express!
