More Awake in Dreams

"Many are more awake, with greater abilities
in dreams than in the daylight.
I walked through a world last night
of such exquisite intricacies...
It was surely as real as any place you ever visited.

Whatever the hand can shape and make last,
the advanced mind can do a millionfold.

And there too, while I slept
so alert, with perceptions keen and powerful,
did I know love, and could more bear her fire.
In dream, in spirit, 

are we not closer to Her likeness?"
