I Dream of Missy With the Soft Grey Fur
(with apologies to: Stephen Foster)

I dream of Missy with the soft grey fur
Borne like a vapor on the summer air
I see her tripping where the bright streams play
Happy as the daisies that dance on her way.
Many were the wild notes her merry voice would pour,
Many were the blithe birds that warbled them o'er

Sam I Am
