Why fades a dream?
An iridescent ray
Flecked in between the tryst
Of night and day.
Why fades a dream? –
Of consciousness the shade
Wrought out by lack of light and made
Upon life’s stream.
Why fades a dream?
That thought may thrive,
So fades the fleshless dream;
Lest men should learn to trust
The things that seem.
So fades a dream,
That living thought may grow
And like a waxing star-beam glow
Upon life’s stream –
So fades a dream.

by Paul Laurence Dunbar
