A Dream Parody

Once a dream did weave a web
Of troubling thoughts within my head
I had become spotted and gray
On grassy lawn me-thought that day
Troubled 'wilder'd and perplexed
I waited for what would be next
I was detained within a stall
I did not like this dream at all

Oh my children! Wake me now!
I've been transformed into a cow
Now in nightmare fantasy
The bovine that's become of me
Cries out loud in great alarm
I wake all creatures on the farm
The farmer asks what wailing plight
Calls him out that time of night

I reply "udderly" in pain
That I've not called him out in vain
I plead that I've no hands so how
Can I milk a bloated cow


Parody of "A Dream" by William Blake

    A pleasure to sit and read poetry this morning. We are getting snow from the Hurricane and the cold northern air coming down from Canada here is Piqua, Ohio this morning. I am glad your excellent poem was one that I came across to read. I hope you are having a good day and if you are in the mist of this weather that you are safe and remain safe Jon. Love, Carol
