After reading and re-reading mushr's "& If This is But a Dream" RECord I was inspired - mushr's RECords often have that effect on me. I wanted to take the nursery rhymes that came to mind while reading her text and weave them into her text to see what the result would be. It brought so many images to mind, I couldn't resist RECording it as best I could.
And if this is but a dream
Bury me headfirst beneath my pillow
Let my mind rest on this bough
My heart is cradled in an egg shell
Nesting eternally in the tree tops
Wishing the whimpering world awash
And when there’s nothing left but sky
The wind will blow me a kiss goodbye
The cradle will rock onto the falls
And ferry me gently down the stream
On the first and brightest star
The child alights and dares to wish
The world into existence.
