A Dream

From The Topeka State Journal, February 28, 1914. By Roy K. Moulton.

Last night as I lay sleeping,
    I had a dream so fair;
Methought I owned a hundred banks,
    With money everywhere.
My home was on Fifth Avenue,
    My servants all content;
It never strained my purse a bit
    To pay for clothes or rent.

I owned all sorts of motor cars,
    A nifty yacht and plane;
I rode where’er I pleased on earth
    And o’er the bounding main,
And in the midst of all my joy
    I got an awful shock;
My banks were closed by order of
    My old alarum clock.
