Dream Land

Dream Land

The sunshine knows where the wind does blow

when the day is wild and free.

Air tastes of salt at the old stone fort

that’s nestled by the sea.

Turn the windlass under sky that’s endless

and leave the shore behind.

Down we go to the waters below

to see what we can find.

The world beneath is a bountiful heath,

a place both strange and pure.

The universe is full of verse

when our hearts love to explore.
