Raven was in a deep sleep, dreaming the world. He saw things and they happened, He dreamed things and they came to life. He hardly knew where to begin or what to do once the world was. At last He understood Fodder's dilemma. It troubled Him, made Him restless, disturbed His sleep. Then the terrible thing happened: He had a thought. Everything dream? He wonder. Then the worst thing happened: He had another thought, one thought following the other. Who dreaming Raven? He wonder and this woke Him up. He looked up, He looked down, He looked all around. Don't know, He say and He couldn't get back to sleep.
