DREAM LIFE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Always the world has ever been
Last Line: That gossamer my breast.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Life


Always the world has ever been
A fairy-land to me.
No road was just a common road
No tree a common tree.

Each road was an enchanted trail
To find a crystal sea
I ran along with skip and jump
At random, fancy-free.

About each tree-trunk hung a spell
Whose pebbles, bits of glass
In hidden nests were images
To bring my dreams to pass.

I never went a-journeying
But that I ended lost,
For I sped down the avenue
A-flame and fancy-tossed.

Ah me! my life has ever been
A fragment from a jest
Torn from the tangled web of dreams
That gossamer my breast.
