Scapes of Forgotten Dreams – a poem

Dominions such as we might never imagine

Those shadowy lands never recalled

Dreamscapes without parallel, hard drawn

Memory fails for all attempts at grasping

Straws have held bare better intimations

Fountains of fire from Io last longer.

 *

Fragments formed from mountain quartz

Glitter brighter than those which store

The dreams forgotten from days of Eld

Far songs sung across snowdrifts sink

In those wonders where wended wisdom’s woe

Memory, memory, most maliciously mighty contested.
