DREAMS
Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
Langston Hughes (1902 - 1967 / Missouri/The United States)

"Dreams" 1894 by Aubrey Beardsley (1872 - 1898)

— Oscar Wilde (The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde)
