Dream-I-Believe I brought        out of the night still streaming                out It was real I was right!
Dream present still I could still        believe in, writhed and twisted                likelihood to serve it…
Dream that was gone I mourned        and quoted, sought and lingered                on sections to my liking.
Dream I had had depended        on puns, events, encounters                even to come to mind now.
I seemed to have held four faiths        by breakfast, and I’d packed them                fighting to their buses.
So I could sit exhausted,        stretching in the sunbeams                like my mother in the old days.

Dream-I-Believe I brought
        out of the night still streaming
                out It was real I was right!

Dream present still I could still
        believe in, writhed and twisted
                likelihood to serve it…

Dream that was gone I mourned
        and quoted, sought and lingered
                on sections to my liking.

Dream I had had depended
        on puns, events, encounters
                even to come to mind now.

I seemed to have held four faiths
        by breakfast, and I’d packed them
                fighting to their buses.

So I could sit exhausted,
        stretching in the sunbeams
                like my mother in the old days.
