Dreams

Keep thou thy dreams though faith should
faint and fail,
And time should loose thy fingers from the
creeds;
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
cold;
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
all wings
Is woven first of them; from dreams
are made
The precious and imperishable things
Whose loveliness lives on—and does not fade.
