Xanadu

I once knew my Xanadu. It lay gleaming as green pastures before me. I only had to reach out and it was there for my taking. When I leapt - I could touch soft clouds! Oh, the fertile time of my imagination! June 2, 2020 For Edward Ibeh's Pick-A-Title, Vol 18 - Yalto 2 - Poetry Contest Title chosen is #5: Xanadu
