December 1975

 

A Dream

 

I woke up forgetting where I was

'Till I heard the rustle of leaves

And a crackle of a twig

As a deer stepped down to drink

 

I heard a bird call from the sky

I couldn't see it, he was up so high

But he flew down

And for me sang a special song

 

As he sang I seemed to float away

Following notes over the woods

Then he stopped

And I slept a deep, long, sleep

 

As I slept I dreamt about the wood

About the deer, birds, bears and trees

I saw a world

And it was living in peace

 

I saw lambs sleeping with lions

And a baby walking among them

The fiercest

And this life was beautiful
