Title: The Castle Above the Clouds

He kissed his princess
And he quietly
Out of the room.

She lay there
In the darkness
Wrapped in a pink
Like a cocoon.

The sound of rain
Sang her to sleep
And the dreams
Lay waiting.

Eyes slowly closing,
Body slowly falling
To Sleep's sweet embrace...

Showered by sunlight,
Serenaded by the wind,
She opened her eyes
To the castle
Above the clouds.

She squealed,
She ran,
She tripped,
And she flew.

The dryads
Greeted her
And the hummingbirds
Fluttered around her.

This is her place,
This is her land.

She closed her eyes
And she prayed real hard
For the sun to never come up
And for her to never wake.
This is her land,
This is her place.
