Out of my body

My mind wandered out of my body
And flew over the fencing next door
I saw with its eyes
Ten invisible spies
Lying on my old shed floor.

Sometimes we daydream of winning
The lottery or football pools
Selfishly dreaming
And following it scheming
Ia  sensible only for fools.

But day dreams spontaneously flowing
Can bring us creative ideas.
Archimedes was in the bath
Andrew Wiles on a path
When genius  became suddenly  near.

I dreamed I was knitting a sweater
From the hair of my friends’ Russian cat
A pattern was given to me
With a big mug of tea
Till the cat leaped  off  to chase a wild  rat

It was a mouse that  it chased round the table
But mouse does not rhyme well with cat
So reality must alter
Or  poetry  will falter
While the cat sits, benign, on the mat
