The Shepards Dream

The Shepherd's Dream, from 'Paradise Lost' 1793 by Henry Fuseli 1741-1825

 

from ‘Paradise Lost’ by Henry Fuseli   1793

‘Whose midnight revels by a forest side
Or fountain some belated peasant sees,
Or dreams he sees, while over head the moon
Sits arbitress, and nearer to the earth
Wheels her pale course, they on their mirth and dance
Intent, with jocund music charm his ear;
At once with joy and fear his heart rebounds.’
