Padraig Pearse

O wise men, riddle me this:
what if the dream come true?

What if the dream come true?
and if millions unborn shall dwell

In the house that I shaped in my heart,
the noble house of my thought?

from The Fool  (1915) Padraic Pearse

We know their dream; enough

To know they dreamed and are dead

from Easter 1916  (1916) W.B. Yeats

George Russell (AE)

And sees the confluence of dreams

That clashed together in our night,

One river, born from many streams

from Salutation (1917) George Russell (A.E.)
