Dream Pedlary by Thomas Lovell Beddoes










Dream Pedlary

by Thomas Lovell Beddoes

If there were dreams to sell,

What would you buy?

Some cost a passing bell;

Some a light sigh,

That shakes from Life's fresh crown

Only a rose-leaf down.

If there were dreams to sell,

Merry and sad to tell,

And the crier rang the bell,

What would you buy?


A cottage lone and still,

With bowers nigh,

Shadowy, my woes to still,

Until I die.

Such pearl from Life's fresh crown

Were dreams to have at will,

This would best heal my ill,

This would I buy.
