Treasure Island

DEEP DARK SOUL POET

(09/1965 / Australia)

A dream within a dream,


A dream within a dream,
So lonely in the winter still;
Wishes going into the air stream,
To never again to fulfil.

A dream within loneliness,
The moments we once had;
The day is now flowerless,
Down this entire winter pad.

A dream within a stone,
So hard and cold of all;
The feeling when we are alone,
A day or two of appal.

A dream within the past,
From nights that were before;
The thoughts that didn't last,
And therefore are no more.

A dream within a reach,
That once was staying here;
And nothing left to teach,
Or nothing gave to share.

A dream within a thought,
That we once knew of some;
But time moved on or bought,
And never again is to come.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
