My Dreamland


Alice C. Bateman

A land of birds and wildlife

Of crystal lakes and streams

A space to lay you head back

And visualize your dreams


A lazy hawk above you

Floats backwards on the air

Blue heron with a purpose

Flies alone up there


Pine needles whisper soothing songs

If you take the time to listen

And morning dew on leafy trees

Can make your whole world glisten


"Ed's Live Bait" and "Wood for Sale"

Not neon signs, but paint

And Sunday Mass, with reverence

In a House of God, so quaint


Clouds touched by the Radiance

Of His own Hand bespeak

Of peace and love and shelter

And strength when we are weak


My Dreamland has lent harmony

Unto this troubled mind

And it can do the same for you

If you are so inclined
