A journey

Would you join me on a journey to the edges of my mind
Help me understand the ruins of the history we’d find
What were once the mighty ramparts of the scientific way
Have decayed to gentle earthworks where poetic grasses sway

Will you help me down the sheep tracks where I chased a wayward thought
That are overgrown with brambles hiding all that I was taught
I will take you to the oak trees that I climbed to see the view
And the tiny woodland clearing where I sat and dreamed of you

Could you show me how you changed things from a garden to a wood
How this lovely ancient forest covered all I understood
How my pond became and ocean and the brook a mountain stream
When you walked inside my mindscape making everything a dream
