FANCY-LAND, by                
First Line: There is soft, purple charm to the night
Last Line: Of the world and eternity.
Subject(s): Imagination; Fancy

THERE is soft, purple charm to the night
And gold on the garb of the day,
There are castles all ivory white,
And strange, fairy children at play,
There are mountains that loom great and grand,
Far glimpses of seas shining bright,
And blossom-blown fields in the land,
The fanciful land of delight.

There the zephyr eternally blows
Through the valleys and gardens in glee;
Down the meadows a great river flows
Past the flowering fields to the sea;
In my barque on this mystical stream,
Unrestrained in my moods, fancy-free,
I drift down the river, — and dream
Of the world and eternity.
