They come to me when I am half asleep,
Drowsy over a book
These people I have known only in books:
David shifting vegetables in Covent Garden,
Sarah picking up pearls in Lottie's house,
Anna's daughter choosing her attic,
and Bel gardening on a London rooftop.
Mamie playing piano for Jock,
Rhoda painting the colorful snow,
Kit traveling around the world,
and Iain being boatman down by the loch.
