This is a bad poem, I think, for one big reason. Have you ever tried to explain a dream to someone? It never really conveys the feeling. Something magical or terrifying happens sometimes in our sleeping subconscious, something that slowly fades once we get up. I feel asleep last night and had a magical dream, and now I'm trying to share it. But this isn't really it. How can I express human emotion with mere words?

A song

in a dream

must come

from somewhere.

-------------------

Floating about,

in the nebulous

cloud of unknowing,

unwritten.

-------------------

The story told

in sleep, the

soothing voice

of the ballad.

-------------------

No memories of

the tale,

no thoughts of

imagining it.

-------------------

The singer,

lovely in her

womanhood,

soothing.

-------------------

Quiet, flowing

like a southern

summer creek,

in the daytime.

-------------------

The impossible

glides in a lullaby

from lips,

plain and unadorned.

-------------------

A head, dark hair

leans on her shoulder

as the song fills

a quiet, happy heart.

-------------------

Never has a

ballad truly

reached the ears

of the dreamer before.

-------------------

And now,

in sleep,

like a flower,

music blooms.
