The Dream
By Lola Ridge
 
I HAVE a dream
To fill the golden sheath
          of a remembered day.
 
Air
Heavy and massed and blue        5
          as the vapor of opium …
Domes
Fired in sulphurous mist …
Sea
Quiescent as a gray seal,        10
And the emerging sun
Spurting up gold
          over Sydney smoke-pale,
          rising out of the bay.
 
But the day is an upturned cup,        15
And its sun a junk of red iron
Guttering in sluggish-green water.
Where shall I pour my dream?
