Peter’s Dream

Peter_pan_1911_pipes

No rose may unclose without thorning

no star bursts to bloom without scorning

no diamonded promise walks unchained of warning

no night stays tight-shut from all inkling of morning

forever a day without waking

I’ll never away from your breaking

dreams I’ll dream with you, mistakeless.
