I dream of flying in living ships

And landing on crystal shores,

Of gardens filled with rainbow hues

And structures made of luminous pearl,

Of birds that speak with gentle affection

And transport me between massive wings

Over shimmering lakes that resemble diamonds

Joined by canals of silver, it seems,

Of light that softly filters down

On violet people with golden hair,

In a land where all things live in peace;

In a place that has never known fear.
