A Dream For You Poem by Patti Masterman

A Dream For You

Rating: 5.0

A dream for you
And one for me;
A mermaid's blue,
A symphony,
A secret house
Inside a tree
The dreamworld's full
Of company.

At night we go
To places rare,
Where no one knows
That they are there;
And every dream
A hidden stair,
That takes us to
A new somewhere.

If only dreams
Could overlap
The sleeping seams
Within our nap,
And precious streams
Not on a map
Then other lives,
We could unwrap.

very whimsical and enjoyable. The poem is simply written and speaks softly like a lullaby, proving that a work does not have to be complicated or overly emotional to be great. I really like this.

This is so beautiful, and so heartfelt, your dreams and your writing go deep... to the soul. I believe you speak for more than one in this tremendous poem. This has such depth of feeling as to truly be put into the realm of 'classic'. Simply wonderful Patti, you have outdone even yourself here. Thanks for sharing this one, I love it.

It is not often I am unsure of what to say about a poem, but here I am, quite speechless. It is not often that I vote on a poem, either, but an exception can be made here, I think.

Seemingly very simple, but this is brevity from a master's mind. I found this name, i thought A he, but when found I found a her I am never disappointed, since she is creating poems to my heart and this is I found for me, but also for YOU as the new reader, a fascinating A Dream For You....I have read and re-read, time and again. A fantastic poem of a.....(as I said before) Master's Mind....I ain 't wrong, I reckon. A 10 plus so many pluses ++++ I wonder that VOTING and RATING both still exist.

How true is that, in dreams we are one place and then in another and it all seems so real. Well done Patti in summing it up.
