Escape to Dreams | Poems From My Youth


In my dreams I can see;
I can see so far away.
I wish I knew who I might be
Long from now when I will say:

'I can hardly even think
Of when I thought of this day.
So far to come, yet in a wink,
It came so fast, too fast, ' I’ll say.

As for now I shall dream
Of that day so far away,
And dream so much it may seem,
I shall quickly, soon decay.

'You're still so young, a child' they say.
It chafes me when it’s put this way,
Because I wish for so much more
When I live each day
ready to soar.

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
