The Dream Garden

Listen to Shaun read his poem ...
Far beyond the ocean
Across the burning sands
There grows a luscious garden
That floats above the land

The trees all bear a ruby fruit
They glimmer and they gleam
And deep within each fleshy pod
You’ll find the seeds of dreams

The master of the garden
She plucks the fruit by night
Then plants a seed inside us
To grant our sleep delight

Someday I’ll tend the garden
And grow each plant with care
To fill the world with wonder
And dreams beyond compare
