Alone With A Dream - Poem by Isabelle Cooper

From a really true dream
wings are grown
And the dream it will
fly

But the second hand dream
With its engineered wings
Is destined
to die

Hand crafted dreams they will not fly-

As the built wing-
(by skill of such logic)
is fated to die

But nature builds truer
by mysterious plan
And rules for us grandly
far more than we can

    But nature builds truer
    by mysterious plan
    And rules for us grandly
    far more than we can.. you find the subtle difference between the natural dream and the made up dream. very fine insight and i love to read this last stanza. thank you dear poetess. tony
