Dreams Are Best

 I just think that dreams are best,
 Just to sit and fancy things;
 Give your gold no acid test,
Try not how your silver rings;
Fancy women pure and good,
 Fancy men upright and true:
 Fortressed in your solitude,
Let Life be a dream to you.
For I think that Thought is all; Truth's a minion of the mind; Love's ideal comes at call; As ye seek so shall ye find.
But ye must not seek too far; Things are never what they seem: Let a star be just a star, And a woman -- just a dream.
O you Dreamers, proud and pure, You have gleaned the sweet of life! Golden truths that shall endure Over pain and doubt and strife.
I would rather be a fool Living in my Paradise, Than the leader of a school, Sadly sane and weary wise.
O you Cynics with your sneers, Fallen brains and hearts of brass, Tweak me by my foolish ears, Write me down a simple ass! I'll believe the real "you" Is the "you" without a taint; I'll believe each woman too, But a slightly damaged saint.
Yes, I'll smoke my cigarette, Vestured in my garb of dreams, And I'll borrow no regret; All is gold that golden gleams.
So I'll charm my solitude With the faith that Life is blest, Brave and noble, bright and good, .
.
.
Oh, I think that dreams are best!
