Treasure Island

My world

Reality is fiction to me,
In my world I understand,
In my world there are creatures,
Werewolves and vampires,
Ghouls and ghosts,
Mages and hobs.

Reality is fiction to me,
I do not understand it,
I cover myself like a cloak,
With my world as fabric,
I am safe here,
Safe here from the unknown world you live in.

Reality is fiction to me,
But I escape in books,
I escape in dreams,
I escape in poems and music.

Reality is fiction to me,
Most anything is unimportant,
So I bid you farewell,
I turn on my heels,
and go to a world that I can understand,
I go to my world,
Will you accompany me?

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

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