AN ANCIENT CHIPPEWA TRADITION The dream net has been made For many generations Where spirit dreams have played. Hung above the cradle board, Or in the lodge up high, The dream net catches bad dreams, While good dreams slip on by. Bad dreams become entangled Among the sinew thread. Good dreams slip through the center hole, While you dream upon your bed. This is an ancient legend, Since dreams will never cease, Hang this dream net above your bed, Dream on, and be at peace. ~~Author Unknown.~~ THE DREAM KEEPER. Bring me all of your dreams, You dreamers, Bring me all of your Heart melodies That I may wrap them In a blue-cloud cloth Away from the too-rough fingers Of the world. ~~Langston Hughes~~ Watercolor - 9 x 12"
