“If they strain me up tight, why, let 'em look out! I can't bear it, and I won't.” ---- Black Beauty


Far away in a fairyland
There were three castles
High above the meadowland
Dangling from the heaven

The first one was as yellow as the sun
With gates made of pure gold
And guarding the gate was a handsome dun
Who had a gracious and proud attitude

The second one was as white as marble
With a gate shaped like a giant lotus
And sleeping there was a bear so mirabile
With a beautiful shining gorget

The third one was as silver as the moon
With a huge glowing star for a gate
And there sat a nightingale with a very soft croon
Flapping its wings with a starry glow

Out I reached towards the first one so bright
To reveal the secrets which it hid
When suddenly my eyes caught a dazzling light
And blinded me for a bit

When I opened my eyes again after a while
There indeed was a brightness like the castle
But it was only the glory of the morning sun
Coming through the branches of a maple

Alas! It was only a dream
But so nice and sweet
It was so like a very strong seam
Which binded the cloth of reality and fantasy


The author's comments:

The poet saw a very fascinating dream, a dream in which she was in a fantasyland. But when the dream broke, the poet understood the importance of dreams, how they play a major role in weaving threads of imaginations into woof.

“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
― Ernest Hemingway

Great! Beautifulpiece of poetry. Really loved it.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
