    An absolute truth that the poet said in this poem. It is the dreams that makes us so happy in our sleep stage where our unfulfilled dreams and unseen friends and gone friends comes in pictures in mind. So much true statement stated in a small poem is really fascinating and therefore I like this poem in its correct senses. (Report) Reply

    Nothing is greater and powerful than your dreams. Follow your dreams, be what you are meant to be. (Report) Reply

    So true. If we didn't have dream's to try and make come true there would be nothing to look forward to, no where to go to, truly like a bird without flight and a frozen field that nothing can live on. (Report) Reply

    Could our dreams be possibly interpreted as that which we lack? Some sort of future state we wish to live in that we currently do not? We should all be content with our present no matter how difficult it may be. Because dreams do come true, and what I mean by that is we do sometimes get what we wish for. What then? ? We pursue our dreams so life may be a broken-winged bird once we realize our dream? Does anyone else get what i'm saying? (Report) Reply

    I'm all in favour of dreams. But can life without dreams be like a broken-winged bird that cannot fly, as well as a barren field frozen with snow, all within the space of so few words? Short, but not all that sweet. (Report) Reply

We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
