Reverie - n. a state of being pleasantly lost in one's thoughts; a daydream or fantasy; a visionary or impractical idea

"To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,—
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.

The revery alone will do
If bees are few." - Emily Dickinson

Give me a day
That is balmy and shimmering;
Give me a field
Where the clover blooms sway;
O let me linger
Where nectar is gathering,
Deep in the blossoms of flowering May.

Give me a shelter
Where sunlight is filtering,
Tempering music
Of humming and whirr,
Then I will gather
A treasure so glistening,
Fragrant as incense, and precious as myrrh.

--Florence Holt Davison
