“Why does that lucid vision”

Why does that lucid vision
I saw in a restless dream
so rattling to my mind at night
still haunt me even by day’s light?
Is it not enough to have
stolen rest from me last night,
that I must still lose peace of mind
even when I’ve left the dream-realm behind?
Its power over me stems from this:
not an answer can I find
whether through the horn or
ivory gate did that dream pass before.
