First Line: Ah, if we only knew!' he said
Last Line: The land where all the dreams are true.
Subject(s): Dreams; Nightmares

"AH, if we only knew!" he said,
The master -- now laid cold and dead --
Under the sweetest song joy sang
This, like a burden, ever rang --

"Ah, if we only knew!" can we,
Now death shows him the certainty,
Now he has won his peace thro' pain,
Wish him back to the doubt again?

Nay, pass! thou great prince Gentle Heart!
Crowned with the deathless days of Art --
To that far country -- old, yet ever new --
The land where all the dreams are true.
