Folded in feather down dreams
safe from fears of the night
undisturbed by winters white screams
thoughts wing away in full flight.
Muffled in merino fleeces
dreams glide over starry horizons
silhouettes hide in recesses
shadows sharpen into dark icons.
Soft lamps burn in dim corners
flooding the ceiling with light
showcasing moths like mad dancers
their shadows are partners in flight.
Beyond the windows protection
ragged wolves whimper and wine
gliiding between fearsome shadows
of gnarled wind blasted pines.
Soft velour fantasy creatures
pillow friends plumped round her bed
unblinking all seeing and hearing
stand guard by her sleep tousled head.
