A Boy's Dream

'Tis of life in the bigger World out there the young teenager day-dream
Far from his parents home by the babbling stream
That flow to the river bound for the sea shore
On a journey destined to last forever more.

He day-dreams of big towns and cities far away
And in the old Valley he surely won't stay
He reads books on life of the big World out there
His future won't be in the Valley he will live elsewhere.

Too young to leave home yet he is only fourteen
But so much in the big World out there to be seen
In four years from now he plans to emigrate
Sixteen Seasons does not seem that long to wait

To start his adventure in the big World out there
Far from the quiet Vale of the wild mountain hare
His life is ahead of him and time is on his side
And he is resolved to travel far and wide
