grow a dream seed

       We grow a dream seed:
       on our furthest branches
       a seed which falls into rich soil.

       In the night, hid from sight, new growth:
       were we to see it in the day
       we would say, "ah yes, I know you."

       By day, we see it not:
       by night, dancing feet cast dark sparks
       new dream seeds.

       So it is, by night, by day:
       the great tree grows.
       We know it not
       nor need we.

       Of all the children in the playground:
       which of us can plant a seed in the morning
       and not poke at it by noon?
