In her poem, ‘’In Praise of Dreams,’’ Polish poet Wislawa Szymborska, who received the Nobel Prize in Literature, talks about all the wonderful things she can do in her dreams. She can write great poems, play the piano, breathe underwater and even see two suns. In other words, there are no limits to the amazing things she can accomplish or experience in her dreams.

Which obeys me.
