THY DREAMS OMINOUS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Blest is the man that sees and hears
Last Line: Through timeless orgies.
Alternate Author Name(s): Blunden, Edmund

Blest is the man that sees and hears
The shuttles of the eternal weaver,'
And shrieks not, sobs not savage tears,
Burns not with fever.
He is a tree that's firmly planted
Where a plunging cataract blanches,
Spreading there as though enchanted
His lucky branches.

But what if I, whose different thews
Scarce bear the dawning light unwincing,
Discovered in some curious clues
Vision commencing?
I should be driftwood, moon and sun
In gulping, groaning water-gorges
Sucked down, shot high, and snatched and spun
Through timeless orgies.
