His Dream


His Dream

  by: W. B. Yeats (1864-1939)


lllllllllllllllllllllll



 

I swayed upon the gaudy stern
The butt end of a steering oar,
And everywhere that I could turn
Men ran upon the shore.

 

And though I would have hushed the crowd
There was no mother's son but said,
"What is the figure in a shroud
Upon a gaudy bed?"

 

And fishes bubbling to the brim
Cried out upon that thing beneath,
It had such dignity of limb,
By the sweet name of Death.

 

Though I'd my finger on my lip,
What could I but take up the song?
And fish and crowd and gaudy ship
Cried out the whole night long,

 

Crying amid the glittering sea,
Naming it with ecstatic breath,
Because it had such dignity
By the sweet name of Death.

A Dream


A Dream

  by: Edith Willis Linn Forbes (1865-1945)




 

The world had long been sleeping;
The earth was cold and gray;
I heard but the sound of my footsteps
As they echoed on the way;
And the voice of pines whose singing
Was learned of the waves by day.

 

I raced with a star while dreaming
All through the silent night;
Till I felt the air on my forehead
Of the night bird's sweeping flight;
Yet I saw the bending primrose,
And the lily tall and white.

 

It mattered not though the pathway
Grew stony, narrow, steep;
That to thorns turned rose and lily,
For my soul, too glad to weep,
Pursued the beautiful vision,
With ecstasy full and deep.

 

On, on through the dewy silence
My restless spirit fled,
No thought of all I was leaving
While that starry glory led,
Which beckoned, forever beckoned,
And forever onward sped.

 

It was only a dream and faded
When the sun touched dale and hill.
Only a dream! but onward
Its glory leads me still.
O, beautiful star, I follow!
Lead wheresoever you will.

The Dream: William Butler Yeats quotes

The Dream: William Butler Yeats quotes

Your Wildest Dreams - Moody Blues








Once upon a time
Once when you were mine
I remember skies
Reflecting in your eyes
I wonder where you are
I wonder if you
Think about me
Once upon a time
In your wildest dreams

Once the world was new
Our bodies felt the morning dew
That greets the brand new day
We couldn't tear ourselves away
I wonder if you care
I wonder if you still remember
Once upon a time
In your wildest dreams

And when the music plays
And when the words are
Touched with sorrow
When the music plays
I hear the sound
I had to follow
Once upon a time
Once beneath the stars
The universe was ours
Love was all we knew
And all I knew was you
I wonder if you know
I wonder if you think about it
Once upon a time
In your wildest dreams

And when the music plays
And when the words are
Touched with sorrow
When the music plays
And when the music plays
I hear the sound
I had to follow
Once upon a time

Once upon a time
Once when you were mine
I remember skies
Mirrored in your eyes
I wonder where you are
I wonder if you
Think about me
Once upon a time
In your wildest dreams
In your wildest dreams
In your wildest dreams
In your wildest dreams
