Puppet of Dream

Whenever, I see birds, I see dream,
To touch the unending end; the skies,
Who says, we don't have feather?
We fly with the dream -dream feather,
Lord's providence; dream through eyes,
That makes a silly man, great and wise,

Whenever I see fishes, I see dream,
To swim and search; what hid in water?
To go against the stream; up to origin
For truth and for the justice for the ken,
Lord has kept dream in us through eyes,
That makes the silly man, great and wise

Human instinct, a joy of dreamy drink,
O! Men and women with dream laden eyes
Dream high-high, never dream rinky-dink
We die, when our lovely dream dies
Lord has putt dream flame in us through eyes,
That makes the silly man, great and wise

What, if there‘s no dreamy dream altar
We would have been, either in peace or in war

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
