Treasure Island

Theresa Ann Moore

(1940 / Michigan, U.S.A.)

If I Dreamed


If I dreamed a dream
To top all others
It would include
Peace among brothers

If I dreamed a dream
That would last forever
It would include
Success in each endeavor

If I dreamed a dream
Of unfaltering love
It would include
The sunshine from above

If I dreamed a dream
Of never growing old
It would include
A kind heart of gold

If I dreamed a dream
Of laugher and wit
It would include
Sides that never split

If I dream a dream
Of my choosing
It would include
The hair I am losing

    Nice Dream, may God bless with more dreams like it, but in real life it should be boaring as a stereo type and in the dreams also, thanks for the Autumn dream, and pray for the other seasonal dreams,10++ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
