Dreamed Life


Like a concertina screen

Unfolding before your inner eyes

Scenes of the decade’s demise

All must reflect on the fact

That time stands still for no man


Call up your recent days

And see if you remember –

or is it a haze?

You will find the distant past

Comes rumbling over the hill

from long ago

As you relive your memory

in various dreams


Dream-memories are

not what they seem

Vivid though they be

They scramble what has been

into another life-lived

A might-have-been scenario

Pick out what you like

And leave the rest of the meal
