By William Henry Hudson


IN the city of my dreams,

Where at times I dwell apart,

Nothing is, but only seems—

In the city of my dreams.

And I find them lovelier far,

Deep within my secret heart,

Things that seem than things that are—

Yes, I find them lovelier far!

I am glad that in my dreams

Nothing is, but only seems!
