Silk dawn is rising
She spreads her wings wide
Warns blue trav’ler he cannot
Continue to hide
And she soaks all the heavens,
Leaves them dripping with light,
But trav’ler speaks only
Of the beauty of night
And dawn bid him awaken,
“At once you must rise!”
That he shan’t float in dreams
That he open his eyes
But poor trav’ler, he says:
“I know only of dreams
I know not of what is,
But of only what seems”
And dawn says to him:
“You cannot
Keep dreams in a jar
You must waken and live them
And be as they are”
And she says, as Sun rises,
Brilliant in the sky,
“You must let these dreams live
Lest with you they shall die”
