Lotus hearts & poppy heads,
Pennyroyal tea in pearl white beds.
Honeysuckle off the stem.
Roses & violets – all of them.
Cotton candy for dreams come true.
Lavender cake of the palest blue.
Saffron slivers mixed in with Mace.
Nutmeg oil – to blush the face.
Thyme to take the edge off the pain.
Ginger for the coldest rain.
Coffee, when all dreams are lost.
Sleep before the morning frost.
