A Little Boy's Dream

Rating: 3.4
To and fro, to and fro
In my little boat I go
Sailing far across the sea
All alone, just little me.
And the sea is big and strong
And the journey very long.
To and fro, to and fro
In my little boat I go.

Sea and sky, sea and sky,
Quietly on the deck I lie,

An incredibly wonderful poem about true love - contentment, and a child's imagination that can only be spurred by a mother's protective and loving embrace.... I think I shall be reading more of Miss Mansfield's poetry. I'm certain that I've seen this form before but can't remember what it is called. Three octave stanzas in couplet rhyme followed by a quatrain stanza in acbd rhyme.... ? ? ?

well the poem is supposed to be a dream, a childs dream of winning a pirate fight, and journeying alone in the sea. It feels to me that he has achieved a victory against an enemy; whatever it was that he was fighting against. Instead of a dream it could be a fantastic illustration of a lonely child, fighting his own battles and winning them all alone because even the fish swim away from him. A child maturing earlier than he should becausr of lifes troubles, 'away from home and from play, only the sea as a friend' just a thought, of course

Interesting reply. I hope that nowaday children don't get nightmares because of the electrosmog.

It's interesting that blank blank doers not like the last stanza, but can he say why he does not like i? . The whole point of the poem is that it IS a dream from which the boy wakes up.
