Pilate's Wife's Dream

Rating: 3.0
I've quenched my lamp, I struck it in that start
Which every limb convulsed, I heard it fall­
The crash blent with my sleep, I saw depart
Its light, even as I woke, on yonder wall;
Over against my bed, there shone a gleam
Strange, faint, and mingling also with my dream.

It sunk, and I am wrapt in utter gloom;
How far is night advanced, and when will day
Retinge the dusk and livid air with bloom,
And fill this void with warm, creative ray ?

I think it's amazing that Charlotte Bronte put such thought and insight into a women only mentoined briefly in the Bible. It's a very poweful poem and I like it very much. :)
