He watches through
dreams
Wings black as Africa
Body strong as stone
Done waiting
The ravens call.“

„Creatures of a day! What is a man?
What is he not? A dream of a shadow
Is our mortal being.“

—  Pindar Ancient Greek poet -517 - -437 v.Chr

Pythian 8, line 95-8; pages 162-3. (446 BC)
Original: (el) ἐπάμεροι: τί δέ τις;<br/>τί δ᾽ οὔ τις; σκιᾶς ὄναρ<br/>ἄνθρωπος. ἀλλ᾽ ὅταν αἴγλα διόσδοτος ἔλθῃ,<br/>λαμπρὸν φέγγος ἔπεστιν ἀνδρῶν καὶ μείλιχος αἰών
Kontext: Creatures of a day! What is a man?
What is he not? A dream of a shadow
Is our mortal being. But when there comes to men
A gleam of splendour given of Heaven,
Then rests on them a light of glory
And blesséd are their days.

„The shadows broke and soul awoke
In a strange, dim dream of God.“

—  Langdon Smith, Evolution

Evolution (1895; 1909)
Kontext: Thus life by life and love by love
We passed through the cycles strange,
And breath by breath and death by death
We followed the chain of change.
Till there came a time in the law of life
When o’er the nursing sod,
The shadows broke and soul awoke
In a strange, dim dream of God.
