Of what do I dream,

when I close my eyes?

I dream of the sea

and the star filled skies.

 

From constellations above

I would fashion a crown;

a cloak from the sea

matches my moonbeam gown.

 

I roam in the heavens

with Arianrod and Aether.

I swim in the oceans

with Nereides beneath.

 

With heartbroken Sirens,

sing laments to the seas.

With Aquilo the wind

I sing songs in the breeze.

 

When I close my eyes,

to this earth I’m not bound.

Neither time nor dimension

can tie this soul down.
