IT is a dream. What then? Are dreams untrue?
Dreams were our angels when I walked by you.

It is a dream! But this is you, I know.
O Love, Love, Love, how could you leave me so?

A dream! But may I never lift my face
From this undying passion of embrace!

Look how my robes are rended and unstarred.
Yea! I am bleeding, trodden down, and marred.

For since you went and left me all alone,
Not one of all the world but casts a stone.

But fast my beauty flowers beneath this rain
Of tender tears. I am a queen again.

Awake, awake! The great Dream-Jester stands,
Pleased with the folly of thy straining hands.
