A Dream Within A Dream - Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

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?

    am seriously astounded by Poe- he uses repetition to draw us into his world- a world of gray fog and grief for losses and yet his is a world expressed so beautifully and so powerfully that to read his poetry and his short stories is to carry them with you for the rest of your life.

    I feel he just expressed the elusive nature of life. One minute you think you have it all and another minute you have nothing. I feel it further shows the only moment you're sure about is the present. (Report) Reply
