But I Don'T Want To For M Lady Ernestine - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

I wander freely mentally.
Enraptured by the things I see
within my worlds of fantasy.

I just reject reality
where nothing ever works for me.
Quite certain I would rather be

divorced from harsh reality
There is no comfort here for me
and live in my own fantasy.

A dream which cannot possibly
be realised apparently
Reluctantly I must agree.

That I am where I’m meant to be.
You can’t escape reality
and learn to act responsibly.

    Fantasy can be so much more rewarding than reality Ivor. As one gets older one dreams more. But reality is always there to remind us that it can't be glorious all the time. Sadly. Thanks you so much for putting my name in lights. They'll probably be saying - Who's she'! ! ! ! ! ! Ha! Ha!
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
