I was a child who dreamed
a cardboard horse.
The boy opened his eyes
and the horse did not see.
With a white horse
the boy dreamed again;
and he took it by the mane ...
Now you won't get away!
He had barely caught it
the boy woke up.
His fist was clenched.
The horse flew!
The boy was very serious
thinking it's not true
a dreamed horse.
And he did not dream again.
But the boy became a boy
and the boy had a love,
and to his beloved he said:
Are you for real or not?
When the waiter got old he thought:
Everything is dreaming, the dreamed horse
and the real horse.
And when death came,
the old man to his heart asked:
Are you dream?
Who knows if he woke up!
