Andervayne’s Dream by Scott Bailey

In these times of quick gratification and short attention spans, I decided to try and buck the trend and present something not only with greater length but also depth. The poems in this collection were written over a long period and for different purposes. They are varied but they are all long. And they all… Continue reading Andervayne’s Dream by Scott Bailey

Andervayne’s Dream – The Tales of the Star Dancer

And Other Poems Andervayne's DreamComing Soon More Details Andervayne's Dream This is the longest and by far the most complex of the works here. The main bulk of the poem follows a very strict format (the Prologue and Epilogue are purposefully outside this format and there is meaning in that too).
