waking wind

when i was four and twenty
i wondered where the time went
since years of dreams before
i was just three and ten
oh not so long ago

then as my slumbery fog
lifted its cozy veil
i swiftly dashed awake
as i quickly realized
i’d hit snooze an hour and ten

once precious dreams
were whisked away
by the winds of waking
morning burns asunder
slumbery spell i’s under

how many dreamscaped aeons
was i stirring beyond the veil
how countless varied lifetimes
have i eluded oneiroi’s jail
when the waking wind shall prevail
