A Dream of Frances Speedwell

Dreamed 1971? by Robert Graves

SOURCE: Collected Poems (1975), quoted in The Oxford Book of Dreams (ed. Stephen Brook, 1983)
I fell in love at my first evening party.
You were tall and fair, just seventeen perhaps,
Talking to my two sisters. I kept silent
And never since have loved a tall fair girl,
Until last night in the small windy hours
When, floating up an unfamiliar staircase
And into someone's bedroom, there I found her
Posted beside the window in half-light
Wearing that same white dress with lacy sleeves.
She beckoned. I came closer. We embraced
Inseparably until the dream faded.
Her eyes shone clear and blue ...

Who was it, though, impersonated you?
