A Dream Poem-Play by R. E. JEFFREY.
Presented by HOWARD ROSE.
The Spirits manifested in the dream are these:-
Crowd of Unbelievers, Believers, and a Procession of Priests.
These characters, and all who appear, are costumed in flowing garb of a period which might have been 1,000 years ago, or maybe that of 1,000 years hence. The scene in which these move and speak is on the outskirts of a city. There are distant lights twinkling over the rising ground, suggesting that the streets are within a stone's throw. The night is cold and bleak ; snow is falling with that mysterious silence which always makes it seem supernatural. An organ pealing its vibrant notes is heard, and the moving sounds of a large body of people singing a hymn of praise lifts the emotions high ; sincerity and intense feeling are present.
A man appears on the portion of the road which is visible; he wears a look of contempt upon his face. He looks over his shoulder in the direction of the sounds of praise, and speaks.
" Easter in Jerusalem."
