A Desert Dream

Last night I dreamt of rolling waves,
Of summer sun and turquoise seas,
Of tapered fields and bracing winds,
Of gentle hills and autumn trees.

Today I woke to rolling dunes,
To burning sun and yellow seas,
To edgeless fields and dusty winds,
To jagged hills and leafless trees.

Last night I dreamed of wooden ships
That rose and fell on dancing surf.
Last night I dreamed of temperate skies
That ruled content o'er living turf.

Today I woke to desert ships
That tripped and stumbled on the sand
Today I woke to shapeless skies
That ruled despotic o'er dead land.

But beauty comes in many forms
Diverse is nature's royal way
Tonight I'll dream again of home
And then awake, enjoy the day.
