A dream of the silvery sea

I dreamed that I swam in a silvery sea
Like mercury from the school lab
and around me were gathered uncountable swans
Looking both regal and sad
Then one floated over and sang to me
In a voice that was mellow and clear
"I've consulted extensively with all of the swans
And you definitely should not be here"

I wondered where I was meant to swim
If i could not swim with these swans,
Till I found myself flat in the back of a car
With a pleasingly attractive young man!
Soon I found I was pregnant with three sets of twins
I was feeling remarkably sanguine.
Till my handsome young lover came back to my side
Along with a rather large penguin.

At 3.33am I woke myself up ,
I was laughing so much I was shaking.
When I fell back to sleep,so quick and so deep,
The penguin was still patiently waiting!
I am afraid I don't recall much more,
My mind was so full of glee;
but when I found some ice by my bed the next day
I remembered that great Arctic Sea
