O unconscious splendour and fiery thought,
Burning tongues of passion eagerly sought,
Bring me sweet Elysian through Morphean eyes,
and play to me Apollo in Auroran skies.
Lift me up on Phoenix wings,
And carry me to where glorius Peris sings.
Where Mulciber sits on his throne of fire,
And in antiquity Venus brings each their desire.
Where dryads in the darkling dance,
And willingly we give into Syrens trance.
Where serindipity rules the ingle fires
And Seraph's play on gold stringed lyres.
Wake me not from my blissful dreams,
but leave me here beside viewless streams.

Yeah, I know !! .. Time to find that Dictionary :-) ... .. However, please see the first comment.. I denoted some of the words just as a help... The picture depicted here is of a Seraph..


  1. Elysian = the abode of the blessed after death

    Morphean = the fashioner or molder, because of the shapes he calls up before the sleeper

    Apollo = the god of light and day (the "sun god"), of archery, prophecy, medicine, poetry, and music, etc.,

    Auroran skies = The Roman personification of the dawn of day; the goddess of the morning. The poets represented her a rising out of the ocean, in a chariot, with rosy fingers dropping gentle dew.

    Peris = An imaginary being, male or female, like an elf or fairy,represented as a descendant of fallen angels, excluded from paradise till penance is accomplished.

    Mulciber = The grand adversary of man; the Devil, or Prince of darkness; the chief of the fallen angels; the archfiend.

    dryads = A wood nymph; a nymph whose life was bound up with that of her tree.

    Syrens = One of three sea nymphs, -- or, according to some writers, of two, said to frequent an island near the coast of Italy, and to sing with such sweetness that they lured mariners to destruction.

    serindipity = good luck in making unexpected and fortunate discoveries

    ingle = Flame; blaze; a fire; a fireplace.

    Seraph = One of an order of celestial beings, each having three pairs of wings. In ecclesiastical art and in poetry, a seraph is represented as one of a class of angels

  2. I am Hypnos.... (god of sleep)
    Thou art my son Morpheus.. (god of dreams)
    "King Sleep was father of a thousand sons -
    indeed a tribe - and of them all, the one
    he chose was Morpheus, who had such skill
    in miming any human form at will.
    No other Dream can match his artistry
    in counterfeiting men: their voice, their gait,
    their face - their moods; and, too, he imitates
    their dress precisely and the words they use
    most frequently. But he mimes only men..."

    Ovid therefore suggests that Morpheus only sends images of humans in dreams or visions, while his brothers Phobetor and Phantasos are in charge of depicting dream images of animals and inanimate objects. Together these three sons of Sleep - Morpheus, Phobetor, and Phantasos - rule the realm of dreams.

    පන්සිල් අරගෙන වල් බූත හිතන්නෙ නැතුව නිදාගත්තම ඔය කිසි දෙයක් පේන්නෙ නැහැ.

  4. Now its abt the dreams right?A topic I never hesitate to talk abt ok have u watched the movie The Sound of Music? I watched it today this little verse is from it...Climb every mountain
    Search high and low
    Follow every byway
    every path you know
    Ford every stream
