Brief though it is, this poetical fragment is both rich and strange. In various ways and for several reasons, it inevitably recalls Coleridge's prefatory prose note to his famous dream vision of “Kubla Khan”, whose words, according to Coleridge, also came to him not in a dream but as a dream.
The only known text of this work is the pencil draft on a small sheet of paper in the library of the South African National Gallery.
The text is specifically dated by DGR.
The work has never been printed.
