CALIBAN [ON THE ISLAND], FR. THE TEMPEST, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Be not afeard: the isle is full of noise
Last Line: I cried to dream again.
Subject(s): Dreams; Sound; Nightmares


Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that, when I waked,
I cried to dream again.
