The God of Dreams



In this sleep of sleeps,
dream of dreams
I fell asleep once
and dreamt I was a Brahmin boy.

Then I awoke
and slept again
and dreamt I was a man; a lover.

Then I awoke
and slept again
and dreamt I was a dreaming poet.


Then I awoke
and slept again
and dreamt I was an immortal soul.


Then I awoke
and slept again
and dreamt I was a dream of dreams.


Then I awoke
and slept again
and forgot to wake,
Forgot to sleep or
to dream.
