TO
EILIDH
THIS BOOK OF DREAMS
THAT ARE REALITIES 


 "The song is the bird's self and the song and its inspiration are one. . . .
A bird flies past me, out of the west: I ask the fugitive, Is it with my love as of yore?
I ask, in turn, the drifting cloud, the wind.. . . You ask of me a song of me, who am but the lyre. Ask it of Love, my dear one, it is he who is the poet."

                                                                                                           
From the Magyar.

"Who is it, therefore, that will speak of the visible such as it is? He who sees it."
                                                                                                     
       PLOTÎNUS.


. . . . . . . For I have seen
In lonely places, and in lonelier hours,
My vision of the rainbow-aureoled face
Of her whom men name Beauty: proud, austere:
Dim vision of the far immortal Face,
Divinely fugitive, that haunts the world,
And lifts man's spiral thought to lovelier dreams.
