A dream within a dream within
With no beginning and with no end

Where does it start
This world apart
That we live while we sleep
Is it real
The things we feel
This other life we keep

Could they be
These worlds we see
Only images to our mind
Or is it true
For me and you
Another life entwined

A world within a world within
The veil of reality dreamily thin

Where one lies down to take its end
The other seeks a life within

Most deVine One: That my words make one think is the highest praise, and it is magnified ten fold coming from you. Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed.

One Voice: I've enjoyed many of your's in turn and I thank you for using the term "artwork." You are most kind.

Balladeer: I can not thank you enough for your kind responses. I consider you to be one of the most talented within these poetic halls, and that you have consistantly left your mark upon my postings is great encouragement to this rookie. (PS, I'm glad you liked the Bal series. It was fun while it lasted.)

Poohbear: My pleasure to do so. Thanks for stopping by... I'll try to keep the honey jars filled.
I'm headed for vacation, so I'll be out all next week. I fear what I'll miss in that time. Thanks again, one and all.

I particularly liked the first and 4th stanza, Andrew. Actually, I think they could stand alone as a seperate piece. This is very thought provoking and delves into a realm of curiosity which makes me feel alive! Thanks for sharing. Nice job.

This is terrific - I can't even choose a verse that I like best - except perhaps the finale.... Nice work, my friend....

Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.

doreen Peri: Thank you so very much. In a way I wrote the first and fourth stanzas as one and then I seperated them with two and three to accentuate the point of not knowing where dreams and reality leave off from one another. Thanks for noticing.

Nan: Your praise is a coin I value most dearly. That you enjoyed my offering makes it all the more special to me. Thank you.
