Dream of a Thousand Years

I love this poem

If a thousand years were to seem

Mere moments of a dreaming sleep

I, a capsule on tides of time

Might drift and see and wander wide

To explore in flights of fantasy

Imagined worlds and wild things

The adventure fresh when I awake

In this now strangely altered place

The millennia a shadow light

Across my mind and across my sight

So when the future meets my eyes

It might gather up the dreaming guise

And then in fancy I would finally be

The dreamer of a lifelong dream.
