A DREAM.

I laid my head down upon the shore
i dreamt a little space
i heard the great waves break and roar
The sun was on my side.

My lazy hands and fingers brown
played with the pebbles gray,
the waves came up and then down
most thundering and gay.

The pebbles, there were smooth and round
and warm upon my hand
like little people i had found
sitting among the sand.

the grains of sand so shinning small
soft through my fingers ran
the sun shore down upon it all
and so my dream began.

How all of this had been before,
how ages far away
i lay on some forgotten shore
as here i lay today.

I have forgotten when i came
or what my home might be
or by what strange and savaged name
i called this raging sea.

I only know the sun shone down
as it stiil shines today
and in my fingers long and brown
the little pebbles lay.
