WRITTEN VERSE

HAD I THE HEAVEN'S EMBRIODERD CLOTHS,
ENWROUGHT WITH GOLDEN AND SILVER LIGHT,
THE BLUE AND THE DIM AND THE DARK CLOTHS,
OF NIGHT AND LIGHT AND THE HALF LIGHT,
I WOULD SPREAD THE CLOTHS UNDER YOUR FEET,
BUT I, BEING POOR, HAVE ONLY MY DREAMS;
I HAVE SPREAD MY DREAMS UNDER YOUR FEET,
TREAD SOFTLY, BECAUSE YOU TREAD ON MY DREAMS.

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die,

That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go,
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

BELIEF

EATING A LARGE MEAL BEFORE BED CAUSES NIGHTMARES.

Submitter comment:

THERE MANY OTHER EXAMPLES OF HOW FOOD IS SUPPOSED TO AFFECT YOUR
