First Line: Life gallops by like a mad horse
Last Line: I dream of her dead eyes. ...
Subject(s): Dreams; Sleep; Nightmares


Life gallops by like a mad horse—
But I sit by the window, and dream. ...
I dream of still marble oceans, like giant sarcophagi,
Bordered with alabaster trees, whose ebony shadows
Cut fantastic caves across their bosoms.

Life howls like a wild hurricane—
But I sit by the window and dream. ...
I dream of vast solitary skies, like sapphire deserts,
Where dead black moons and dead black stars
Squat in echoless eternity.

Life sings like a drunken bird,
But I sit by the window and dream. ...

I dream of her dead eyes. ...
