• A dream within a dream - Edgar Poe


                  A dream within a dream

                  Take this kiss upon the brow!
                  And, in parting from you now,
                  Thus much let me avow-
                  You are not wrong, who deem
                  That my days have been a dream;
                  Yet if Hope has flown away
                  In a night, or in a day,
                  In a vision, or in none,
                  Is it therefore the less GONE?
                  ALL that we see or seem
                  Is but a dream within a dream.

                  I stand amid the roar
                  Of a surf-tormented shore,
                  And I hold within my hand
                  Grains of the golden sand_
                  How few ! yet how they creep
                  Through my fingers to the deep,
                  While I weep_while I weep!
                  O God! Can I not grasp
                  Them with a tighter clasp?
                  O God! Can I not save
                  ONE from the pitiless wave?
                  Is all that we see or seem
                  But a dream within a dream?


                             Edgar Poe
