The Sister’s Dream

Figure descriptions
A woman sleeps in a canopy bed. Her blankets cover the lower half of her body and she drapes her right hand over her head. Three women stand closely together at the head of her bed. They embrace and lean over, looking over the sleeping woman. The three women are barefoot and stand on a small cloud. The poem text suggests that they are part of the woman’s dream. There is a tall lamp in the corner of the room. The moon is partially visible in the background from behind a lattice window pane. The window has multiple sections and comes to a pointed arch at the top. There are curtains on the side. Full-page illustration contained within a multi-ruled border.
