To The Land Of Make Believe

In my night of lonely sleep
Their lie’s a waiting ship
With tassels torn and sailor forlorn it sails its nightly trip,
Post haste I hope
On air and grace
No hull no figurehead no face,
Of floating trees no smell or breeze
To the land of make believe.

Come with me aboard my ship
And join the dreaming few
In Ernest I call
The crew ‘tis small
Awash in this, my dreamy sea,
Of mountains high and men that cry for maidens locked in towers
Of giant tales and princely fables
I make the dreams come true…

I land ashore
To rapturous applaud
To the locals the hero’s returning,
I climb a wall so high and tall to rescue blonde fair maiden
Then on we ride side by side
Your love for me eternal,
Through milky streams and sunlight beams
To find a cloth of purple.

A magic carpet…
In tandem we fly it
To leap the rivers as puddles
Of Oceans deep and castle with keep
We cross a thousand lands,
And when we're done just flying along we’ll catch a Dragons sneeze
And with his breath we hold on tight
To sail it’s borrowed breeze.


On we fly
Where clouds duth lie, and heavens door we ring
Higher still our hearts to thrill
To meet the man in moon,
On cheese and ham and strawberry jam a feast his table platter
Then down to earth of sea and surf to raise a mighty tidal,
For on its crest we’ll dance our best
Two tunes, one Bach, one Handel
Then up again to catch a star and paint a bow all yellow,
In heavens above
Two ships in love
We’ll wish again tomorrow.

But wait….
Below us, a mighty battle rages
The flags all red on green
To stop the bad from winning I need to wake the dream…
Too many times I’ve sailed this ship
Too many nights alone
Of restless slumber ‘tis small wonder I dream in flight with you,
For in my life and not in dreams
I find reality beckons
For dragons sleep and maidens weep
For the knight has rusting armour.

I have neither love nor sorrow
Am I a dreaming fool?
I write for pleasure
My poems the treasure
‘Tis thoughts for all I leave,
So take my hand we’ll walk together
To the land of make believe,
On sleepy trips
In tattered ships
We’ll fly in dreams forever…
