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?
