    A Swimmer's Dream

    Somno mollior unda

    I
    Dawn is dim on the dark soft water,
    Soft and passionate, dark and sweet.
    Love's own self was the deep sea's daughter,
    Fair and flawless from face to feet,
    Hailed of all when the world was golden,
    Loved of lovers whose names beholden
    Thrill men's eyes as with light of olden
    Days more glad than their flight was fleet.

    So they sang: but for men that love her,
    Souls that hear not her word in vain,
    Earth beside her and heaven above her
    Seem but shadows that wax and wane.
    Softer than sleep's are the sea's caresses,
    Kinder than love's that betrays and blesses,
    Blither than spring's when her flowerful tresses
    Shake forth sunlight and shine with rain.

    All the strength of the waves that perish
    Swells beneath me and laughs and sighs,
    Sighs for love of the life they cherish,
    Laughs to know that it lives and dies,
    Dies for joy of its life, and lives
    Thrilled with joy that its brief death gives -
    Death whose laugh or whose breath forgives
    Change that bids it subside and rise.

    II
    Hard and heavy, remote but nearing,
    Sunless hangs the severe sky's weight,
    Cloud on cloud, though the wind be veering
    Heaped on high to the sundawn's gate.
    Dawn and even and noon are one,
    Veiled with vapour and void of sun;
    Nought in sight or in fancied hearing
    Now less mighty than time or fate.

    The grey sky gleams and the grey seas glimmer,
    Pale and sweet as a dream's delight,
    As a dream's where darkness and light seem dimmer,
    Touched by dawn or subdued by night.
    The dark wind, stern and sublime and sad,
    Swings the rollers to westward, clad
    With lustrous shadow that lures the swimmer,
    Lures and lulls him with dreams of light.

    Light, and sleep, and delight, and wonder,
    Change, and rest, and a charm of cloud,
    Fill the world of the skies whereunder
    Heaves and quivers and pants aloud
    All the world of the waters, hoary
    Now, but clothed with its own live glory,
    That mates the lightning and mocks the thunder
    With light more living and word more proud.

    III
    Far off westward, whither sets the sounding strife,
    Strife more sweet than peace, of shoreless waves whose glee
    Scorns the shore and loves the wind that leaves them free,
    Strange as sleep and pale as death and fair as life,
    Shifts the moonlight-coloured sunshine on the sea.

    Toward the sunset's goal the sunless waters crowd,
    Fast as autumn days toward winter: yet it seems
    Here that autumn wanes not, here that woods and streams
    Lose not heart and change not likeness, chilled and bowed,
    Warped and wrinkled: here the days are fair as dreams.

    IV
    O russet-robed November,
    What ails thee so to smile?
    Chill August, pale September,
    Endured a woful while,
    And fell as falls an ember
    From forth a flameless pile:
    But golden-girt November
    Bids all she looks on smile.

    The lustrous foliage, waning
    As wanes the morning moon,
    Here falling, here refraining,
    Outbraves the pride of June
    With statelier semblance, feigning
    No fear lest death be soon:
    As though the woods thus waning
    Should wax to meet the moon.

    As though, when fields lie stricken
    By grey December's breath,
    These lordlier growths that sicken
    And die for fear of death
    Should feel the sense requicken
    That hears what springtide saith
    And thrills for love, spring-stricken
    And pierced with April's breath.

    The keen white-winged north-easter
    That stings and spurs thy sea
    Doth yet but feed and feast her
    With glowing sense of glee:
    Calm chained her, storm released her,
    And storm's glad voice was he:
    South-wester or north-easter,
    Thy winds rejoice the sea.

    V
    A dream, a dream is it all - the season,
    The sky, the water, the wind, the shore?
    A day-born dream of divine unreason,
    A marvel moulded of sleep - no more?
    For the cloudlike wave that my limbs while cleaving
    Feel as in slumber beneath them heaving
    Soothes the sense as to slumber, leaving
    Sense of nought that was known of yore.

    A purer passion, a lordlier leisure,
    A peace more happy than lives on land,
    Fulfils with pulse of diviner pleasure
    The dreaming head and the steering hand.
    I lean my cheek to the cold grey pillow,
    The deep soft swell of the full broad billow,
    And close mine eyes for delight past measure,
    And wish the wheel of the world would stand.

    The wild-winged hour that we fain would capture
    Falls as from heaven that its light feet clomb,
    So brief, so soft, and so full the rapture
    Was felt that soothed me with sense of home.
    To sleep, to swim, and to dream, for ever -
    Such joy the vision of man saw never;
    For here too soon will a dark day sever
    The sea-bird's wing from the sea-wave's foam.

    A dream, and more than a dream, and dimmer
    At once and brighter than dreams that flee,
    The moment's joy of the seaward swimmer
    Abides, remembered as truth may be.
    Not all the joy and not all the glory
    Must fade as leaves when the woods wax hoary;
    For there the downs and the sea-banks glimmer,
    And here to south of them swells the sea. read more »

    The Dreamer

    The lone man gazed and gazed upon his gold,
    His sweat, his blood, the wage of weary days;

    All gay and gleamy to the campfire blaze. read more »

    All people dream, but not equally.
    Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind,

    Dreams Nascent

    My world is a painted fresco, where coloured shapes
    Of old, ineffectual lives linger blurred and warm;
    An endless tapestry the past has women drapes
    The halls of my life, compelling my soul to conform. read more »

    Dreams Old

    I have opened the window to warm my hands on the sill
    Where the sunlight soaks in the stone: the afternoon
    Is full of dreams, my love, the boys are all still
    In a wistful dream of Lorna Doone. read more »

    The Shearers Dream

    O I dreamt I shore in a shearing shed and it was a dream of joy
    For every one of the rouseabouts was a girl dressed up as a boy
    Dressed up like a page in a pantomime the prettiest ever seen
    They had flaxen hair they had coal black hair and every shade between read more »

    Dreamers

    Soldiers are citizens of death's gray land,
    Drawing no dividend from time's to-morrows.
    In the great hour of destiny they stand,
    Each with his feuds, and jealousies, and sorrows. read more »

    Dreams in the dusk,
    Only dreams closing the day
    And with the day’s close going back
