AZUL Camille — The Dream-Ship

LEA29_003

I had hoped to get this written and published before the close of Join Hands for Nepal, but time and events conspired to make it nearly otherwise. Still, if you can get to the event before it closes, please do so. This dress I wear, and the pearls from Lazuri, are both special editions made for the event.

When the world is fast asleep,
Along the midnight skies–
As though it were a wandering cloud–
The ghostly dream-ship flies.

An angel stands at the dream-ship’s helm,
An angel stands at the prow,
And an angel stands at the dream-ship’s side
With a rue-wreath on her brow.

The other angels, silver-crowned,
Pilot and helmsman are,
And the angel with the wreath of rue
Tosseth the dreams afar.

I chose LEA29 to photograph in. I’m standing in the water here, which accounts for the interesting effect on my skirt and train. All photos in natural light, with just a little facelight to bring out features when needed.

 

The dreams they fall on rich and poor;
They fall on young and old;
And some are dreams of poverty,
And some are dreams of gold.

And some are dreams that thrill with joy,
And some that melt to tears;
Some are dreams of the dawn of love,
And some of the old dead years.

On rich and poor alike they fall,
Alike on young and old,
Bringing to slumbering earth their joys
And sorrows manifold.

Even if you don’t rush over to get these special editions, you should consider a purchase of the gown and jewelry. I love their look!

 

The friendless youth in them shall do
The deeds of mighty men,
And drooping age shall feel the grace
Of buoyant youth again.

The king shall be a beggarman–
The pauper be a king–
In that revenge or recompense
The dream-ship dreams do bring.

Vanity Hair is still a classic.

 

So ever downward float the dreams
That are for all and me,
And there is never mortal man
Can solve that mystery.

But ever onward in its course
Along the haunted skies–
As though it were a cloud astray–
The ghostly dream-ship flies.

Two angels with their silver crowns
Pilot and helmsman are,
And an angel with a wreath of rue
Tosseth the dreams afar.
