Poe: A Dream Within A Dream by sar-the-scare Poe: A Dream Within A Dream by sar-the-scare
PLEASE FULLVIEW

"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 Allan Poe

The premise of the poem is pretty much exactly that! The narrator's life and hope slip through his fingers like grains of golden sand, lost to the tide. Thank you so much.
