A Dream Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

A Dream

Rating: 4.0


In visions of the dark night
I have dreamed of joy departed-
But a waking dream of life and light
Hath left me broken-hearted.

Ah! what is not a dream by day
To him whose eyes are cast
On things around him with a ray
Turned back upon the past?

That holy dream- that holy dream,
While all the world were chiding,
Hath cheered me as a lovely beam
A lonely spirit guiding.

What though that light, thro' storm and night,
So trembled from afar-
What could there be more purely bright
In Truth's day-star?

It is only in our dreams that we have the freedom to be whoever we can not during the day.

Poe describes well the life, the waking life as a nightmare.
