by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

I dreamt I caught a little owl
Language: English 
"I dreamt I caught a little owl
  And the bird was blue--"

"But you may hunt for ever
And not find such a one."

"I dreamt I set a sunflower,
  And red as blood it grew--"

"But such a sunflower never
Bloomed beneath the sun."
