I can't remember the title, poet or a single actual line but I can't stop thinking about a dim memory of it. It's about a mother with a feverish child who has a nightmare about a lion, so the mother lifts the imaginary lion up and puts it out of the window. I think it was a poem for adults. Thank you, this is really stuck in my mind...

If it helps, it reminds me slightly of "Morning Song" but it is an old memory and that could be totally misleading!

Is it 'The Sundial' Gillian Clarke?
