A Dream Poem by JAMES ROBERTS

A Dream

Rating: 3.0


THE DREAM

IN A DREAM I SAW YOU WEEP A SINGLE SOLITARY TEAR;
IT CAME FROM THAT EYE OF HAZEL FLECTED WITH GREEN,
AND THEN MANY MORE TEARS DID APPEAR;
AS FLOWERS DO BESIDE THE HIPPOCRENE,
THEN YOUR SMILE; A SPANGLED BLAZE;
SLOWLY CEASED TO SHINE,
AS IT COULD'T OUTLAST THE LIVING RAYS,
THAT FILL THAT FACE OF THINE;
AS CLOUDS FROM EOS' DAWN RECEIVE,
A DEEP MELODOIOUS DYE;
WHICH SCARSE THE SHADES OF COMING EVE,
CAN BANISH FROM THE SKY;
FOR YOUR SMILE IT DOES MY TROUBLED MIND,
ITS PURE JOY IMPART;
AND YOUR EYES DO LEAVE A SMOLDERING GLOW BEHIND;
THAT ENGULPHUS- AND BRIGHTENS UP;
MY LONELY SLEEPING HEART.
