I had a dream within a dream before the dream began
Of bright red poppies, verdant fields and blue expansive skies
Walkways of stone and fragrant steps of spice and marjoram
A vison flickered and passed on, shot by before my eyes
Humanity was streaming forth to CIty on the Hill
Bringing its flocks, its fruits, its wheat
Gold, incense, bronze and steel
I saw a dream within a dream,
Which means it's meant to pass
But it did not and it was gone
A dream about the past
I wakened, gazed at rising dawn
and sparks of color on the wall
and shadows moving on.
Come back my dream within a dream
So I can dream again
My heart beat music of this dream
Before the dream began.
In dreaming space there is no past, no future, and no pain
It will now come, already came
Before it even went
I am a thought within a dream
That G-d once dreamt on High
I was a light inside His beam
a thought to verify.
And now I dream His dreams and hope
To drum His beat and sing His trope
Before the dreaming stops.
