Hold Fast Your Dreams

Within your heart
Keep one still, secret spot
Where dreams may go,
And, sheltered so,
May thrive and grow
Where doubt and fear are not.
O keep a place apart,
Within your heart,
For little dreams to go!

I had an immediate, unexpected, and visceral reaction to this snippet from Louise Driscoll’s poem, Hold Fast Your Dreams. I could analyze it, but I won’t do that here and now.
