The Indian Advocate
Vol XXL iflap 1909 m. 5. q -f & & A DREAM. 5r a m Back she came in a dream of light, Her eyes were pale as the stars at dawn, And over her brow so smooth and white The shining folds of her hair were drawn. As love may look on the parting bier I had seen her go o'er the sea afar, Tis only in dreams our lost ones are. A varying light from every side Stole in through the beech trees' leafy bars, For I thought that the west was saffron-dyed And the east was a blossoming field of stars. The cheek that looked to the western sea With the glow of a happier time still shone, But the one that was next the east and me Was wan as the light of a snowy dawn. Only a little while she stayed, And she left no promise of day behind, But the skies were over me star-arrayed And a dream-place vacant within my mind. And I felt for my life was incomplete For lack of the vision that would not stay As a child that hath tasted of something sweet Doth feel when 'tis snatched from its lips away. CONDY MOLLOY.
