Best Poem of Katherine Mansfield

A Little Boy's Dream

In my little boat I go
Sailing far across the sea
All alone, just little me.
And the sea is big and strong

Sea and sky, sea and sky,
Quietly on the deck I lie,
Having just a little rest.
I have really done my best
In an awful pirate fight,
But we cdaptured them all right.
Sea and sky, sea and sky,
Quietly on the deck I lie--

From my home and from my play,
On a journey without end
Only with the sea for friend

How warm our room... how the firelight spread

And now it was I--and then it was you
Slept a moment, to wake--"My dear,
I'm not at all sleepy," one of us said....

Was it a thousand years ago?
