They Dared A Dream (poem)

They dared a dream to dance into the day

A challenge made in mist of lovers’ mind

Who when together to all else were blind

So their enchantment to a dream did stray

-

Imaginations’ thrills the dream entwined

As every turn brought feast of something new

With every breath they lit a wonder drew

Till heaven’s stairs were thoughts they had designed

-

Such endless limits filled the lovers’ view

Confusion saw the glory of their light

Was then they felt the sunset of their night

As summer’s dream brought parting rains’ warm dew

-

But in the cavern of their darkest blight

They woke to find their dream had gone away

And left them holding lifetime seconds play

To dance in knowledge dream graced to their sight
