To a Woman

In Homer's day the Greeks believed
dreams had to cross one of two thresholds:
Those of false prognostication,
of misinformation meant to be the pedestal
for tragedy to step up to,
issued through the Gate of Ivory.
Those of canny guidance, which
lowered the dreamer into oracular depths
and brought him back up, dripping,
entered through the Gate of Horn.
Which gate did you come by?
