A Child's Garden of Dreams
     I.     There is a desert on the moon where the dreamer sinks so deeply into the ground that she reaches hell.
     II.    A drunken woman falls into the water and comes out renewed and sober.
     III.   A horde of small animals frightens the dreamer. The animals increase to a tremendous size, and one of them devours the little girl.
     IV.   A drop of water is seen as it appears when looked at through a microscope. The girl sees that the drop is full of tree branches. This portrays the origin of the world.
     V.    An ascent into heaven where pagan dances are being celebrated; and a descent into hell where angels are doing good deeds.

Rolling Thunder - Henry Fillmore
