Peppermint Dreams

I come from far across the sea  …  
a land where flowers grow on trees, 
where peppermint grows by every gate, 
where good things always make you wait. 

But now I’m here where flowers grow 
inside hot houses in the snow 
and peppermint’s dried and used as tea 
and good things choose to stay unseen. 

But in my dreams I still can see 
the flowers blooming in my tree 
with peppermint growing all below 
as streams of goodness ebb and flow.
