Like a Dream

          Awaking to a grey-blue morning.
         Skies unshowing up above
        But over yonder on horizon
       Sunlight colors break with love.
      Proudly arching in the morning
    Glowing like a star in evening
   Yet when clouds again pass through
  Sunlight dims and rainbows fade away
                    Like a dream.

          Standing under silver birch-leaves
         Gazing over silken seas
        Moonlit waves brush over beaches
       Hushing birds who flit through trees.
      Starlight gleaming on the water
     Gentle is the ocean laughter
    Yet with cold winds of the North
   Wave crests rising wash the peace away
                    Like a dream.

        Crystal light peeps through the pine trees
         Sky is tipped with fiery gold
        And with the sun the world is resting
       Although I see sunset unfold.
      Sun sinks down behind the mountains
     Leaving in its wake a fountain.
   Yet the color burning bright
  Night replaces gleam of fading day
                    Like a dream.

          So even as the twilight slips from sight
           And as the morning brings an end to night
            Much good fades from life without a fight
                    Like a dream.
