'Somewhat obscure' etymology. The top radical is now 'grass'. Middle radical is 'eye' (目). Bottom elements represented a 'covering' of the eyes. This character originally meant 'dark night'. The meaning of 'dream' may be related to 'night', or the character may have been borrowed to express it. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: ' Cover eyes at night and dream of grass.'
