Origin: F. Reverie, fr. Rever to dream, rave, be light-headed. Cf. Rave.

1. A loose or irregular train of thought occurring in musing or mediation; deep musing; daydream. Rapt in nameless reveries. When ideas float in our mind without any reflection or regard of the understanding, it is that which the french call revery, our language has scarce a name for it. (locke)

2. An extravagant concient of the fancy; a vision. There are infinite reveries and numberless extravagancies pass through both [wise and foolish minds] (Addison)
