Who Shall I Dream of Tonight?

Tonight as I lay my head on my pillow,

I look outside beyond the window

And see the stars as I fall asleep.

 

Who shall I dream of tonight?

Shall I dream of Johnny Depp whose acting is out of sight?

Or should I dream of Orlando Bloom whose so hot

that I could weep?

 

I can dream of Adam Levine who I think is cute

Or of Ryan Gosling who I think is a hoot

I can definitely dream deep

 

I may also dream of Ben Barnes who’s ruggedly handsome

And end it with Joseph Gordon-Levitt who’s gorgeously awesome!

With all these guys I’d be having a hard time

choosing who I’ll dream of tonight

Leaves Compared With Flowers

A tree’s leaves may be ever so good,
So may its bar, so may its wood;
But unless you put the right thing to its root
It never will show much flower or fruit.

But I may be one who does not care
Ever to have tree bloom or bear.
Leaves for smooth and bark for rough,
Leaves and bark may be tree enough.

Some giant trees have bloom so small
They might as well have none at all.
Late in life I have come on fern.
Now lichens are due to have their turn.

I bade men tell me which in brief,
Which is fairer, flower or leaf.
They did not have the wit to say,
Leaves by night and flowers by day.

Leaves and bar, leaves and bark,
To lean against and hear in the dark.
Petals I may have once pursued.
Leaves are all my darker mood.
