Halcyon World

Come with me, let’s take a ride,
Swiftly, silently to glide
‘Cross the cerulean sky;
Above the earth, flying high.

Through the air, over the land,
Twisting, turning, hand in hand;
Then beyond the em’rald sea,
Floating, drifting, peacefully.

So to ford the bridge of time,
Into places so sublime -
Leaving all that’s done, behind;
See the future - in our mind.

Trav'lling on to worlds unknown,
Every rock and every stone,
Passing there beneath our eyes,
Marks the road to Paradise.

On and on our way to wend,
Every corner, every bend,
Leading us beyond the gloom;
On to where the flowers bloom.

On to where all things are fair,
Wearing garlands in our hair;
Dancing on the crested clouds,
Spread beneath as angels’ shrouds.

There within a halcyon world,
All our dreams to be unfurled -
We shall live as spirits born,
Heralding a golden dawn.

Come with me, let’s take a ride,
Spanning o’er a deep divide;
Such that sets the senses free -
Come, O come, just you and me.

    Diamonded with laser light coming through. A pure insubstance felt through and through.
    Your dreams dreamed are coming true.
    While waiting under English willow, blue Britain sky, on white Isles of crashing seas.
