~The Dream~ ( Triolet ) -A tribute to "The Slave’s Dream" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow- One night the slave had a nice dream And in the dream he was just free He heard sounds of freedom’s bold scream One night the slave had a nice dream And saw light of liberty’s gleam No more felt flesh by whips just bleed One night the slave had a nice dream And in the dream he was just free.
