Verse: David dreams


David dreams of Connemara
Safely by his mother's side,
Playing tag amongst his brothers,
Buck and frolic, seek and hide.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

David dreams of misty mountains
Grass so green, so lush and high,
Soft rain falls from sacred fountains
In a never-ending sky.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

David dreams of dizzy gallops
Bounding through the sweetest air,
Sunny carefree bliss of summers,
Ignorant of hurt or care.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

David dreams of days beforehand,
Without harness, wire or wheel,
No-one shouting, no bones broken,
No legs cut by tangled steel.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

David dreams of home in Ireland
Before ferry and the road,
Before terror, cold blind panic,
Made his gentle mind explode.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

David dreams of Connemara,
Simpler days when home was best,
Safer days beside his mother,
Kinder days of peace and rest.
