by Emilie Frances Bauer (1865 - 1926)

Send me a dream
Language: English 
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.
