I know this room,

and there are corridors:

the pictures, I have seen before;

the statues and those gems in cases

I have wandered by before,—

stood there silent and lonely

in a dream of years ago.

I know the dark of night is all around me;

my eyes are closed, and I am half asleep.

My wife breathes gently at my side.

But once again this old dream is within me,

and I am on the threshold waiting,

wondering, pleased, and fearful.

Where do those doors lead,

what rooms lie beyond them?

I venture. . . .

But my baby moves and tosses

from side to side,

and her need calls me to her.

Now I stand awake, unseeing,

in the dark,

and I move towards her cot. . . .

I shall not reach her . . . There is no direction. . . .

I shall walk on. . . .

- F.S. Flint
