Dreams are rudiments of the great state to come. We dream what is about to happen.
To dream of a lily, denotes much chastisement through illness and death. To see lilies growing with their rich foliage, denotes early marriage to the young and subsequent separation through death. To see little children among the flowers, indicates sickness and fragile constitutions to these little ones. For a young woman to dream of admiring, or gathering, lilies, denotes much sadness coupled with joy, as the one she loves will have great physical suffering, if not an early dissolution. If she sees them withered, sorrow is even nearer than she could have suspected. To dream that you breathe the fragrance of lilies, denotes that sorrow will purify and enhance your mental qualities.
