Old Adam

Dreamed 1804/12/7 by Robert Southey

Some time ago I saw Adam -- an old man, half stupefied with age; he lived in a little lonely cottage, and complained to me that Eve was grown old, and did not use him kindly -- she did not get his supper comfortably for him.

He told me there were a great many of his descendants whom he had never seen, and particularly one William Taylor, of Norwich, who, he had heard, was a very clever fellow, and he wished to know if I knew him.

from The Oxford Book of Dreams (ed. Stephen Brook, 1983)
