Canadian Singers and Their Songs/Virna Sheard
Keep thou thy dreams though faith should
faint and fail,
And time should loose thy fingers from the
The vision of The Christ will still avail
To lead thee on to truth and tender deeds.
Keep thou thy dreams through all the winter's
Where weeds are withered and the garden grey—
Dream thou of roses, with their hearts of gold,—
Beckon to summers that are on their way.
Keep thou thy dreams,—the tissue of
Is woven first of them; from dreams
The precious and imperishable things
Whose loveliness lives on—and does not fade.
