18  Sometime Voices (1996) 10:09
  Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments  
  Will hum about mine ears; and sometimes voices,  
  [That, if I then had waked after long sleep,  
  Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,  
  The clouds methought would open, and show riches  
  Ready to drop upon me; that,] when I waked,  
  I cried to dream again.
