Echoes of Dreams

The angels keep their ancient places; 
Turn but a stone, and start a wing!
'Tis ye, 'tis your estrangèd faces,
That miss the many-splendoured thing.
-Francis Thompson

Echoes of Dreams

Into the dream-fields of summer, I will go
where the violet-winged bird turns
and flies, over emotions of stone.

I will search for those estranged faces one by one,
among echoes and beside rivers of starfalls,
I will drift alone, turning and freeing emotions of stone.

Into the forgotten fields of Summer dreams, I will go-
seeking the splendour of echoes of streams
Into the misted realms of the violet-winged bird
I will  flee, turning, freeing emotions of stone 
alone like a free thought above and below

I will flit, I will drift, I will seek, I will go
into the  starfalls of echoes of dreams.

    Dear POETESS, SuZ, I hope YOU rewrote this POEM because I honestly thought I commented on it before, but it is different. I did not see any other POEMS with the Title (Echoes of Dreams) so it is not a part 2. Anyway Superb Pen LOVE YOUR vivid descriptions. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Liege...Harry

    Your poem beautifully describes how our hovering presence, even in thoughts and dreams, illuminates and frees our being when we seek meaning in ourselves and in our relationships with others. thanks for sharing, Suz.
