The Lady In My Dreams

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “The Son” by Mary Oliver: despair, dreams, miracle, shining, happiness, greet, sorrow, swagger, mysterious, bear, expulsion, wrists

The lady in my dreams, she looks so mysterious
With just one eye not covered, she looks anxious
Such great sorrow and despair I see from her eye
As if she spends most of her time with her cries
Her body exhausted after the expulsion of energy
I can tell she’s making a dramatic plea
The problems she’s carrying too heavy to bear
I would like to care for her, I promise and swear
Her wrists and hands all tied up with black cord
I wish for her not to be hated or abhorred
And then the knight with shining armour came
Who has done great deeds as the public acclaim
He greeted her as he swaggered along the corridor
He’s probably the miracle she was waiting for
To give her happiness and love in this world
They fell in love and together they twirled

    There is a wonderful flow to this piece and some truly delightful and very evocative lines –
    With just one eye not covered, she looks anxious
    Such great sorrow and despair I see from her eye
    As if she spends most of her time with her cries -you’ve definitely captured and essence so moving in these lines –
