THE DICTIONARY OF DREAMS

                                    Apples on the ground?  Expect false flattery.
                                    Crows, above, below, portend misfortune.
                                    The fox is to be feared for sullied reputation.
                                    Avoid a wounded lark or downfall comes.
                                    Spades, held in a hand of cards, mean grief.
                                    Ice, walked upon, foretells hot shame.
                                    Onions of any kind bring envy and spite.
                                    Dream of a loosened tooth and hope fails.
                                    Warts on another’s hand? You have an enemy.
