Send me a dream from the Dream Tree, And then perhaps I may know How the leaves of pale green, Get their delicate sheen, And the fragrant pink blossoms grow. Send me a dream from the Dream Sea, And then perhaps I may hear Some sweet song in the shells Of the mermaid who tells Her secret in tones silver clear. Send me a dream from the Dream Cloud, And then perhaps I may feel Just a tear from the sky As it passes me by, Its grief in the earth to conceal. Send me a dream from the Dream Star, And then perhaps I may see In the tremulous glow, Both above and below, The light that is shining for me.
