only dreams

things brushed past, and from the shadows on the wall they seemed to be horses with spindly legs and waving manes.  and there were shadows of huntsmen, ladies and gentlemen, on horseback.  ‘those are only dreams,’ said the crow.  ‘they come to take the thoughts of their royal masters off to the chase.’  the dreams on horseback pranced into the room again. 

from hans christian andersen’s the snow queen
