Dream Me

Close your eyes, little girl, I’ll spin you a dream
Kiss me now, little girl, I’ll spin you a dream
I’ll close my eyes, sleep, spin me a dream
I’ll kiss your cheek, sleep, spin me a dream

Close your eyes, sweet maiden, I’ll weave you a dream
Kiss me now, sweet maiden, I’ll weave you a dream
I’ll close my eyes, sleep, weave me a dream
I’ll kiss your lips, sleep, weave me a dream

Close your eyes, pretty woman, I’ll draw you a dream
Kiss me now, pretty woman, I’ll draw you a dream
I’ll close my eyes, sleep, I’ll draw me a dream
I’ll kiss your breasts, sleep, I’ll draw me a dream

Close your eyes, aged crone, I’ll write you a dream
Kiss me now, aged crone, I’ll write you a dream
I’ll close my eyes, sleep, I’ll write you a dream
Kiss me now, sleep, I’ll write you a dream


The stages of this poem’s writing:
Step 1: Insomnia.
Step 2: Finally get some sleep and excitedly share the news with a friend.
Step 3: Said friend responds in the way only she knows how: “You go and kiss sleep on the mouth….”
Step 4: Think about the different qualities of sleep and how they can be represented by different kinds of loving.
Step 5: Have dissertation thoughts, add musings about aging and women and magic.

  1. I love that the progression of this poem speaks so strongly of life and living (and growing). When we are children, everything seems half-magical and the other half we aren’t quite sure about. Things begin to take shape as we leave (most of our) childhood. Then, comes cronehood, the time when we finally realize that we need to start scribbling our own lives real. Thank goodness we don’t need to be old to start growing into the crone within.

    Love the notes. ๐Ÿ™‚
