What If . . .?

What if you slept?
 And what if, in your sleep you dreamed?

Birth of Venus (1863) Baron Friedrich von Hardenberg


And what if, in your dream. 
              You went to heaven 

 And there plucked 
A strange and beautiful flower?

And what if,
When you awoke,
You had the flower in your hand? 

My Sweet Rose - painting by John William Waterhouse

. . .Ah, what then?

poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)
