A Sonnet of a Child Dreaming On a delicate sky, so brightly wild, a hand-quilted, threadbare constellation was put up like a curtain by a child dreaming he's king of a new young nation. A minute and an hour hand were stuck up on the moon. The night was keeping time. It was more than just skill, more than just luck that helped his past and his future to rhyme. He left behind The Seeds of Decision to bloom into verdant sons and daughters. His dreams have flooded the world with visions. The houses are under colored waters— young colors, wholesome colors, sung colors; colors of growth, colors of young lovers.
