A Tribute to Barrie

Let me take you to this place
Where all things flawed you’ll abdicate
Where water is of sweeter taste

Where beauty flies about your face
Where I your soul will liberate
Let me take you to this place

There’s no adieu there is no haste
Impurities will dissipate
Where water is of sweeter taste

Happiness is on your face
When your heart illuminates
Let me take you to this place

You can go at any pace
You’re never early, never late
Where water is of sweeter taste

There is both time and open space
Where you and I will jubilate
Let me take you to this place
Where water is of sweeter taste

A dream-like, beguiling piece.

Good work :P

Reminds me of this, by Christopher Marlowe:

The Passionate Shepherd to His Love


Come live with me and be my Love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That hills and valleys, dale and field,
And all the craggy mountains yield.

There will we sit upon the rocks
And see the shepherds feed their flocks,
By shallow rivers, to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.

There will I make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
Embroider'd all with leaves of myrtle.

A gown made of the finest wool
Which from our pretty lambs we pull,
Fair linèd slippers for the cold,
With buckles of the purest gold.

A belt of straw and ivy buds
With coral clasps and amber studs:
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me and be my Love.

Thy silver dishes for thy meat
As precious as the gods do eat,
Shall on an ivory table be
Prepared each day for thee and me.

The shepherd swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May-morning:
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my Love.
