I dream of faraway lands,

Of the brave conquering quests,

Of sparkling banks of sand,

Of warriors put to test;


Of fears, triumphs and loss,

Of adventures and morals,

Of shadowy trees and moss,

Of turtles and red corals;


Of geniuses long gone,

Of kings and empires,

Of enmity or love sworn,

Of mighty chapel spires;


Of wishes and hopes forgot,

Of sighs and sobs in sorrow,

Of love and joy new-begot,

Of stories for tomorrow.
