	by Dr. Bedros Afeyan

	 I dreamt I saw you in a dream
	You were white in dress, flowers adorning black hair
	You were singing, swinging, swaying from a key
	To key stroke of genius and elegy

	You sang of desire, of endless folly
	Having visions of sonnets
	The Bard would greet with envy

	You sang of love, abandon, menagerie
	You cooked and scraped and loved my company

	But every dream in dreams must end
	To reveal crusted truths in moments
	Before the taking of cakes and tea

	 Did you get old, amber and bitter?
	Was it savage tyranny to be pretty?
	Have you been hopping from nuit to ennui?

	I have moved on too, sweet unattainable muse
	I do not miss you at all, hardly once have I dreamt
	Of a dream to quench my insatiable worship of debris

	Davies Symphony Hall
	While listening to Strauss' Four Last Songs
