【原创】A dream in a dream of a dream

He dreamed of a tender night

Permeated with misty moonlight

Listening to the singing of the joyous frog

And gazing at the center of pond

There,alas,a new moon is found.

He held the pond water in his hands

Where his own moon smiles, and

With the greatest care, he tiptoed back home

Dreaming of the moon as his companion in the room

The moon dripped between his fingers

But his dream still lingers

Up he looked at the sky

Where the moon was smiling, with her beautiful eye

The moon carried him into another dream

and high in the sky, amid the stars, the moonlight beams

but he was wrapped in an immense shadow

of a woman, walking ahead of him, fast and slow

wherever she goes, he has to follow

He walked and walked till he could not move a step

leaning against a tree, he went back into sleep

in the warm shadow of the woman in black

just like a baby, nestling in his mother’s lap

Sweet sweet he dances in his dream

the faint glows of the moonlight gleam

out of the lap of the woman he awoke

there stands a pretty girl in white,

and in the moonlight her eyes glow

“Who you are, and where are you to go?”

“I am the one you sought long, long ago,

and now I will follow you, wherever you go.”

Slowly he stands up, gazing at the girl in white

Yeah, she is right the one he’s dreamed of, day and night.

With the swift gaits of the horse they rode

Bounced across the meadow and into the wood

“Where are you taking me, my man?”

“Dear, I will carry you into our dream land.”

Back they were to the pond

The moon was hanging atop

The chorus of the frogs was their band

and into the pond they walked, hand in hand.

In the night breeze the girl’s long hair was flying

And the boy’s eyes were burnt with yearning

in the center of the pond they were standing

And between them, O the moon was dancing.
