    @tiju martin...hi! i cannot ensure the authenticity of the explanation, but still i am going for it...hopefully it'll help you as much as it would to me.
    the preceding lines talk about the situation being a smaller dream in the huge canvas of life which itself is a dream. so in your extracted portion, the poet inquires, if the hope is lost or dismantled then is it gone forever...in other words, if the mere loss of a hope would leave us hopeless forever.

    Mr. Martin, hope flying away describes the poet's dreams of peace and happiness decreasing with each passing day because he can't travel back in time. Also, this quatrain describes to the reader how memories fade from the mind.

    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?

    can any help me in understanding the above?

    One of my favorite author. I always use his works for declamations and such!

    What I saw in this poem is how hurt the guy to be parted from the one he loved. His sorrow that whatever they have has now come to an end, and even if he tries to catch and keep even the smallest fragment of memory about their time together... it's as if it slowly is fading and reality is invading... that maybe, whatever they have are just but lies...

    this man was a genius!
