Londi the Dreaming Girl

Londi stands on the grass looking up at the clouds.

Londi was a dreaming girl. Up in the sky, she didn’t see clouds.

The clouds are shaped like geese and fish and sheep.

Instead Londi saw flying geese, jumping fish, and fluffy sheep running home.

Londi lies on the grass. Gogo comes outside.

One afternoon, Gogo came outside, looking tired.

“Londi, stop dreaming!” she said. “It’s time to go and fetch the water.”

Londi's feet are on the grass.

Londi stood up and smiled at her feet.

“Let’s go, feet! You know the way there!”

Londi walks to the tap carrying her bucket.

Londi started walking to the tap. She hopped over the rocks.

She crept past Mama Neli’s house. She dashed down the path.

Londi stands behind others in the queue for the tap.

The line at the tap was long. “Oh no!” Londi said to her feet.

“We’ll have to wait. Let’s stay in line. No dreaming away!”

There is a shiny purple shoe in the bush.

Ooh! Londi thought. But what’s that shining over there?

I wonder who lost their shoe?

Londi dreams of a girl wearing only one purple shoe. She also dreams of a pig wearing three purple shoes.

Did it belong to a girl like me?

Or something else…

Londi crouches down next to a yellow bird and her chicks.

And what’s that under there?

Cheep! Cheep!

Gogo stands with her hands on her hips. She has a big shadow.

And what’s that big shadow? Uh oh, it’s Gogo!

“Londi, your bucket nearly rolled away!”

“Sorry, Gogo. I dreamed too far, again.”

The setting sun smiles. Londi watches. Gogo carries the bucket home.

They filled up the bucket together. Londi watched the big sun sink into the hills.

“Come let’s go, my dreaming girl,” said Gogo.

Londi looks up and sees a pink pig in the sky.

“Look, Gogo! There’s a pink pig in the sky!”

“Oh Londi… It’s just a cloud,” Gogo sighed.

Londi took Gogo’s hand and they walked home together happily.
