A desert dream


A desert dream



I am puzzled by a dream so rare

on the sands of a desert I lie bare,

I am sleeping in the midst of trees

Though it is surrounded by sandy heights

A green valley is in my sight

Water may be scarce there

but a broad river is before me

I lie lonesome and lonely there

but the songs of the angels I can hear

Hunger may give some pains

but every thing is there to eat and drink

I am the king and I am supreme there

none will question me to walk and run



I am caught up by a desert dream

Are they real or just seem to be?
