  • Oh, It Is But A Dream

    Twas a time, I’m sure you know,
    When leaves were left to spin,
    When days were warm and hearts were sworn
    To love and care for kin.

    Twas a beauty, oh so clear,
    A trickling in the stream,
    When love was kind and day was mine,
    Oh, it is but a dream.

    Shan’t we weep o’er what’s not sweet
    Or shall we wait and see
    What life we find in mind with time,
    An empty canopy?

    Ne’er I say to wait for day
    Let hist’ry thread its seam,
    Instead move forth till life find perch.
    Oh, it is but a dream.

    Liked the refrain; although a bit trite to my ear, it did do something for me, the tone of the ending did feel "concluded" ... and this was a well rounded poem, I much enjoyed the rhythm Darthvader! Thankya for sharing.
