A Dream Within a Dream - Edgar Allan Poe, 1809 - 1849

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
You are not wrong who deem
Thus much let me avow:
Yet if hope has flown away
That my days have been a dream;
Is it therefore the less gone?
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
I stand amid the roar
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
Grains of the golden sand
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
How few! yet how they creep
Them with a tighter clasp?
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep--while I weep!
O God! can I not save
O God! can I not grasp
But a dream within a dream?
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
