A Dream Within a Dream - Edgar Allan Poe
3
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;
4
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.
5
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand —
6
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep — while I weep!
7
O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
8
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
9
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

A Dream Within a Dream - Edgar Allan Poe
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?
