A little dream

A little dream burst forth
In the little heart of mine
To skim the skies with my toes
And play with stars that shine;
To spin the white cotton clouds
Into gossamer light
And hold aloft to sheath the winds
When I, like a dream, take flight.
To prance forth through viridian realms
The world at my feet
Through lavender to steal ones breathe
Nodding purple heads to greet
The misty breeze beneath my wings
As through my little dream I soar
Singing like a bird at dawn
As nightingales implore
Of little dreams and youthful tide
Of little hearts that burst
With promise of a world to see
And to see the world, the thirst…

    the iambic pentameter (if i am not wrong) is near perfect

    its one of the more refreshing things i’ve seen in a long long time.

    and whats even better is that that the verse isnt skewed because of the rhyhme

    but look at me getting all technical. its a pretty little piece πŸ™‚
