What Babies Dream - Poem by Josh Weiss

Have you ever wondered what babies dream?
wonderfully different than ours it would seem.
Without knowing the great sin of this land,
Their dreams before them remain so grand.
Stand tall and over them quietly view,
And pray tell what feeling takes hold of you.
As you realize they must only dream of the life before,
Where the purple winged butterflies and great falcons soar.
Where vast verdant fields span before their eyes,
And tall above shine magnificent blue skies.
Where gardens of roses without thorns grow
And the sun shines a warm golden glow.
Winds fiddle aside fruit sweet and nice,
In this place where only happiness would suffice.
Then with a flash and rip of loud thunder,
The babies awake and stare with wonder.
Clenching their fingers and squinting their eyes,
Naked and cold and quite full of surprise.
Have you ever wondered what babies dream?
Only of warmth and the very supreme.
