While You Were Asleep

While you were asleep, the world was a desert
With camels and palm trees and lonely white castles.

And I was a prince and you were a princess,
Asleep on a carpet with sandy white tassels.

And caravans came with gypsies and rain-song;
You’d hardly believe it, for there were so many.

The world was a place of emerald softness,
And people came calling for music if any.

I seemed like an elf alone in the moonlight;
I wanted to touch you, but you were asleep.
