|I love to daydream in a flower garden. Where do you like to daydream?|

I Live Within
I live within a rev'rie, dance
to Mozart's symphonies and chance
to spread my wings and fly afar
upon imagination's star.
Of truth and knowledge, fine romance
until with jealousy, askance
does dogma take a jealous stance
and cleave and claw a bright red scar!
I live within.
Embrace I must the world and prance
and place a dream's hypnotic trance
upon the minds of those who are
so limited by judgement's glare.
To miracles! To truth's advance!
I live within.

This rondeau poem (click on following link for specific rhyming pattern) is for Imaginary Garden with Real Toad's "Mary's Mixed Bag" AND Poetry Jam: Daydreaming.
My son pointed out a "fix". Reverie did not work with the "count" for a rondeau, so I borrowed from Shakespeare (can't go wrong there, right? :) (Reverie: daydream)
Believe it or not, Albert Einstein was a daydreamer and considered that and perseverance his greatest assets. (click for his QUOTES on daydreaming and similar things) My poem is what I think he would like us all to do... embrace not just what WE know, but embrace the world so our knowledge, our truth, can expand!
A quote from him I love is: "If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales." I used the word "fancy" because it fit the rhythm of my structured poem.
