Treasure Island

David Wood

(07 April 1950 / London)

I Dreamed a Dream


I dreamed a dream in nights gone by
Of sailing ships and of the seagulls cry
Of the setting sun late in the afternoon
And a starry night and a rising moon.

And of mermaids singing their sweet song
High above where the albatross throng
Where the sea laps on the wooden bow
And sailors mop a salty brow.

Of rigging singing as the wind did blow
With sailors working on the deck below
And of tall masts with a full set of sails
The captain with a spyglass looking out for whales.

I dreamed a dream in nights gone by
Of sailing ships and of the seagulls cry.
Theses dreams with a vivid colour of life,
Make a pleasant break from life’s trouble and strife.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
