    dreams easy to spell difficult to realise, with Hughes i feel that at least i have something to live for and fight to make it comes true.

Dream Variations

To fling my arms wide
In some place of the sun,
To whirl and to dance
Till the white day is done.
Then rest at cool evening
Beneath a tall tree
While night comes on gently,
Dark like me-
That is my dream!
