DREAMS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Beyond, beyond the mountain line
Last Line: Lies somewhere o'er their edges.
Alternate Author Name(s): Humprheys, Cecil Frances; Alexander, C. F., Mrs.
Subject(s): Country Life

Beyond, beyond the mountain line,
The grey-stone and the boulder,
Beyond the growth of dark green pine
That crowns its western shoulder,
There lies that fairy land of mine,
Unseen of a beholder.

Its fruits are all like rubies rare;
Its streams are clear as glasses;
There golden castles hang in air,
And purple grapes in masses,
And noble knights and ladies fair
Come riding down the passes.

Ah me! they say if I could stand
Upon those mountain ledges,
I should but see on either hand
Plain fields and dusty hedges;
And yet I know my fairy-land
Lies somewhere o'er their edges.
