Dreaming on moon-lit nights, makes the future
look bright. You may ask for three wishes,
was on the mysterious piece of paper
that fell down the chimney, just when the little
old couple were toasting a piece of bread.
Gold teeth, elegant clothes, a diamond palace...
What a difficult choice!
This story, adapted from the traditional
Portuguese oral tradition, speaks about the power
of dreams, of luck that capriciously comes
and goes before our eyes and that while we have
affect and dreams to fulfil, we shall be happy.
