To Sleep, Perchance to Dream

To sleep, perchance to dream
And float on clouds of cream
Then dip in passion’s stream
And bask in sunlit beam

To lie in flowers fair
Butterflies in my hair
With love enough to spare
With joy I’ll lead you there

Your fairy dressed in light
Your kisses to incite
Drench you in pure delight
Bring pleasure to your sight

Dip you in honey sweet
Your love is mine to eat
Ecstacy is my treat
Your craving I will meet

Your wish is my command
I'lllet you guide my hand
Bow down to your demand
Love's words I understand

Close your eyes, hear the sound
Rhapsody’s all around
Together we are bound
This love dance does astound
 
To wake, perchance to see
You lying next to me
Forever you will be
My waking fantasy

    Wow!!! Nathan...3rd place. An honor.....Would you believe that I read this very poem on Drake's show lasr Sunday???? This very one!!!! I just made a slight change in line four to make the beat correct.....The Bard would turn over in his grave if he read my take on Hamlet's soliliquy, but should his ghost appear to seek revenge, I will read to him this lovely post of yours. Thanks..I'm beaming....

    :) Thank you, Richard. That is a title to treasure for sure!

    I bet Shakespeare wishes he'd thought of this, Auntie you've used that opening line to create a perfect fantasy. You're my favourite fairy lol. Take care, Richard

    :) Why thank you, Richard. Took a course on Shakespeare and His Contemporaries. Wasn't drudgery, but pure bliss! I LOVED IT! I LOVE HAMLET. Saw a couple of different versions of it. This soliloquy was fascinating. Of course, I must give it a different twist, mustn't I! :) Who are the other fairies? Good to know the competition!

    I love how the waking world ended up being even more amazing than this colorful "dream world". It's amazing when one finds this person that makes their wildest dreams pale in comparison. Looks like you found yours ;)
