If a Cloud

If a cloud was my pillow,
How well I would sleep!
No more tossing and turning
And counting of sheep.
I would dream of the stars and
The oceans below,
How they mirror the skies and
The secrets they stow.
I would watch a pale maestro
Conduct the tide’s ebb
As the notes of the waves form
A musical web
And dance to the sweet,
Haunting, pure melody
With the wind as my partner,
How splendid we’d be…

There’d be no more qualms,
Only marvels allowed,
In the dreams of a pillow
With essence of cloud.  Copyright 2013 © Sonya Annita Song

    As the notes of the waves form
    A musical web
    And dance to the sweet,
    Haunting, pure melody
    With the wind as my partner,
    How splendid we’d be…

    (It’s if a cloud were my pillow. Subjunctive mood. Not reality.) Please delete this part of comment. And thank you for the ongoing support.

    1. In British English, both “was” and “were” are recognized for hypothetical use, with “were” being seen as more formal. “If I was” is regularly used by highly educated British English speakers. As grammar changes over time, I believe this will also become the trend in North America.

      1. As a former linguistic major, I’m glad to know that. =) Thanks.
