Unicorns and Dragons
peacocks and the like
gargoyles gently lurking,
clocks that never strike

candles burn in corners
wild forests grow and bloom
serenity and solitude
in my fourth mansion room

benevalent, beneficent
quiet of every kind
hovers always near
in the fourth mansion of my mind

I see life through
stained glass eyes
in amethyst shadows
of paradise

This is where I live
This is where I'm free
Here my mind runs barefoot
Here I'm really me

The world can't intrude
for all the world is blind
and only I can see
the fourth mansion of my mind
