~::~ Idyllic Dreams ~::~


I lay adrift in idyllic dreams

Of mellow ochre sunrise

It makes me croon, the silvery moon

That bewitch the senses in surprise



Soaring on my magical carpet

A fluffy cloud says hello

It makes me croon, the silvery moon

When Minervas play melodious cello


Deep within the mahogany woods 

Fairies danced in silken sheer

The silvery moon, it makes me croon

While it lights the sky like chandelier


I dance around in sweet reverie

With satyrs, elves and pixies

It makes me croon, the silvery moon

While I lay adrift in fantasies


I hope you liked the poem, please leave your comments, feedback and brickbats
