Subject(s): Eyes; Vision; Youth


You see a woman in velvet and satin,
I see the dim little dream she dares hold.
You see a man who is shabby and broken,
I see a dream that is shining with gold.
You see a boy who is calling his papers,
I see his vision of rose-tinted mist,
You see a man who is sullen with barter,
I see a dead little dream that he kissed.
You see a youth who is buoyant and eager,
I see the bundle of dreams that he brings,
Soon they will scatter and fade like frail bubbles,
Leaving him old through a lifetime of springs.
You see a woman whose brown shawl is ragged,
Wrapped in its folds is a treasure divine.
I see your dream with wings that are trailing;
And ever so slyly I try to hide mine.
