My Dream

Here are my dreams—
  Star studded,
Flecked with the foam of the sea,
Like roses drenched with the dew
  Fresh budded,
Dear dreams that are the soul of me,
I set them adrift in the morning—
  No one cared,
Save I, save I alone,
I cried aloud to the Gods of Life,
  “Let one be spared.”

And lo! with the stars when darkness fell
  They all came home.
