    "A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air."

    The Land of Dreams

    Awake, awake my little Boy!
    Thou wast thy Mother's only joy:
    Why dost thou weep in thy gentle sleep?
    Awake! thy Father does thee keep.

    "O, what land is the Land of Dreams?
    What are its mountains, and what are its streams?
    O Father, I saw my Mother there,
    Among the lillies by waters fair.

    Among the lambs clothed in white
    She walked with her Thomas in sweet delight.
    I wept for joy, like a dove I mourn -
    O when shall I return again?"

    Dear child, I also by pleasant streams
    Have wandered all night in the Land of Dreams;
    But though calm and warm the waters wide,
    I could not get to the other side.

    "Father, O Father, what do we here,
    In this land of unbelief and fear?
    The Land of Dreams is better far
    Above the light of the Morning Star."
