 Dream Song by Walter de la Mare from Poems for Boys and Girls


I simply love the imagery in this poem by British poet Walter de la Mare and Lois Maloy has illustrated this book in such a beautiful way. Sadly, I could not find anymore information about Lois. The little bats and the owl make this a perfect poem for this month of Halloween posts!



The image for 'Dream Song' has been enhanced using the Pixlr, photo app.

Hope you all enjoyed the quirky poem!
