A Dream rewritten

In my dreams an elf gave me a seed
he told me to plant it as a good deed

I took it to the valley of rainbows
chasing off the oh so curious cows

Planted it loam that was so rich
soothing the soil to the right pitch

Watering it in with joyful tears
listening to it grow with open ears

Over time it grew to majestic beauty
flowers scented highly and so pretty

This was the Tree of Hope and Happiness
that casts away despair and weariness

I fell asleep beneath its protective leaves
and when eventually I awoke, it was under my eaves

I was home in bed, I doubt I ever really left
all the same I awoke from it feeling bereft
