Snow in the Dreamland

I sit in lone silence
At the mouth of a deep cave
Watching the white snow
Fall in my dream...
~
The dreamland, a world
Not of my creation
Inspired and built
By the words on a page...
~
I sit, but don't shiver
(I don't feel the cold)
And once in this world
I'll never grow old...
~
But now I'm confusing
My tales (and my rhyming)
And putting one in
The place of the first...
~
Deep prints in new snow
Now serve to remind me
This place isn't safe -
(Did I once say it was?...)
~
At the mouth of a deep cave
I sit in lone silence
Watching the white snow
Fall in my dream...
