Last Line: Yet dreams themselves allow me none.
Alternate Author Name(s): Lope De Vega
Subject(s): Dreams; Nightmares


To set my jealous soul at strife,
All things maliciously agree,
Though sleep of Death the image be,
Dreams are the portraiture of life.

I saw, when last I clos'd my eyes,
Celinda stoop t' another's will;
If specious Apprehension kill,
What would the truth without disguise?

The joys which I should call mine own,
Methought this rival did possess:
Like dreams is all my happiness;
Yet dreams themselves allow me none.
