To Dark Eyes Dreaming

To Dark Eyes Dreaming by Zilpha Keatley Snyder

Dreams go fast and far
these days.
They go by rocket thrust.
They go arrayed
in lights
or in the dust of stars.
Dreams, these days,
go fast and far.
Dreams are young, these days,
or very old.
They can be black
or blue or gold.
They need no special charts,
nor any fuel.
It seems, only one rule applies,
to all our dreams-
They will not fly except in open sky.
A fenced in dream
will die.
