'A Wood of Childish Dreams' by William Forde.
'A child's dream is nought but God at play
with love-shaped leaves; a woodland day.
Where brown bears climb up branchless trees
and goblins hide within the breeze,
and wrap themselves in candy clouds
while down below bears talk to owls.
That which is found in innocence is never what it seems,
but a wand of magic specialness, a wood of childish dreams.'
