When Dreams Fade Away…

When Dreams Fade, M. Mair, original art

When Dreams Fade, Margaret Mair, original art

Dreams are hope
Woven into a tale
Wherein we dwell
At the silken center
Of a magical web
Of charming stories
Spun into life among
The beauty of wildflowers
And sweet fruit of sturdy trees
Or the green and silver grasses
And high sheltering bulrushes
That cover the slopes and meadows
And edge the lapping waters
Along the shores
Of our lives.
Dreams lend us wings
To soar into the future;
Then the world turns
And we drift down to earth
Finding ourselves nothing
But body and bone
As dreams fade away.

Written by Margaret Mair
