Only in Dreams

Only in Dreams

A Poem by Stella Armour



Only in Dreams



I dreamed I built a country

where music played for skies,

 all the melodies were in minor chords,

so gentle, no lows or highs.

 

I dreamed I grew cathedral trees,

arms stretching far and wide,

and all the leaves were sacred notes

that could not be denied.

 

I dreamed to disperse all shadows

into rays of light that sang

 in harmony with each other,

 and the bells of peace that rang.

 

I dreamed of tranquil meadows

where lullabies thread the streams,

 and I died in my kind of heaven

but only in my dreams.

Really liked the rhyming in this one. Did not the celebrated Mr. S say something to the effect that we are the stuff of which dreams are made?

You are welcome dear Stella.
What a beautiful dream Stella. On waking I would imagine a feeling of disappointment that it had all ended. If only dreans came true. Your stanzas are much admired by this reader.
