Inspired by a song on Grave New World by The Strawbs

Queen of Dreams

I was listening to “Grave New World” by The Strawbs and noticed the song title “Queen of Dreams”. The lyrics of the song are impressive to0 so I have used them as a guide for my own poem. This a free form with a sonnet base.

The final three lines of my poem are from "The Book of Invasions"

This is the first verse written by Dave Cousins:

Spoke the Queen of Dreams

I was Lord of the Forest

Walked within her paths

Sheltered within her bowers

Pine needles for my pillow

The dove my only true friend

I was Lord of the Forest


I am the Lord of Always

And You are the Queen of Dreams

Sailing on the Ocean A Maze

Your Silver Paths There Do Gleam


I am the Lord of Ever

You are the Deep Ocean Queen

Love with perfect endeavour

In Coral Caves Beauty Seen


I am the Lord of Friendship

You are the Queen of All Love

Showing Your Great Ladyship

The Sea Below, Sky Above


If I Were King of Morning

And You Were Queen Of Day

I would love You
