The Life of a Dream
     by Jing Cheng

Dreams are blown
By gentle pastel winds
From the fields of fantasy
And the meadows of imagination
Where they thrive and prosper
Fluttering and fair
Light as a cloud on a breezy day
Floating flowers are they
Drifting in the world
Until the rose fairies
Take them to the little boys and girls
Who sleeping peacefully, snug in their beds
Are given sweet stories by each petal
Rosy petals, bringing the happiness and joy of fantasies
That only dreams can offer
Settling the imagination of the last child
The petals slip back to the fields of fantasy
And the meadows of imagination
To carry the thoughts of other children
Such a small task
Yet it brings delight to all
