LITERARY / POETRY ANTHOLOGY
Dreams are the seeds from
which have grown
All that we have and all that
From empires and cities to
quantum and fission,
All have been born from a
What beauty is I’ve never
For if you snare it, lo - it’s flown.
But comes a moment, unaware,
It softly whispers: “I am here.”
“Here in the wind and in the sky,
In deep-mossed earth and storm-
Here in the trees and the caring
And the stars that glitter in the
vasts of space.
“In snow and fog and clear-
In halls and fountains and sun-
In music and paintings and old
And rainbows and windmills and
“In every leaf and in every tear,
If you lovingly seek, you will find
Just look with eyes that truly see
And thou in Elysium with me
