Race you to the sunset
And while daylight isn’t done yet
I shall pocket you the moon
Then build a rocket ship for two
For the monopoly on view
To where the crockery is new
In curiosity renewed
By dreams so modestly accrued

Race you to the river side
To wade through stream revivified
With great esteem we dignified
By sitting pretty side-by-side
Giddy from the spinning top
We rode atop delighting in variety of ways to slip and slide
Shifting in a nifty drift of mist permitted lift
As we resisted urge to purge
Were then acquitted of our crimes
Had we persisted misaligned
Then we’d have missed the distant light
Which guided intermittently and cryptically reminded
Of a history reliant and intrinsically reprising

Race you to the fresh horizon
Under a whole wealth of guises
Trying out the stars for size
To prize a sight our hearts assign
To each petite beat sweet of neat design
Ours tolled a some way kinder chime than mine, all mine
Thus, with blinders open wide we redefined

Race you to the stop sign
Then what say we keep on going
Open hearts outgrow their scars
Even though they may show signs of slowing
What the future holds for us
There’s no real way of knowing
Yet sitting pretty side-by-side we’ll keep this river flowing

Race you to the oldest, wisest tree
We ever dreamed
Some place where both light and shade are interlaced beneath
Grab yourself a clutch of leaves and toss them to the skies
For here within this haven safe
You’ll only see them rise
Play hide and seek with me
Let us find the secrets of their flight
Play by day
Then whence it fades
Release them to the night

Race you to the fresh horizon
Under a whole wealth of guises
Trying out the stars for size
To prize a sight our hearts assign
To each petite beat sweet of neat design
Ours tolled a some way kinder chime than mine, all mine
Thus, with blinders open wide we redefined

I shall pocket you the moon
Then build a rocket ship for two
In faith that we can breathe the dead space back to life again
Race you to the climbing frame
Let’s hang there from our knees
Sitting pretty side-by-side on high terrain foreseen
Through eyes so wide
They crystallized a dream
Famed creation some place in-between
