A Dream Within A Dream

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?

    I would much rather see such a quiet display than the booming ones. I used to love fireworks, but now that I see and read about how much it disturbs the aminals, I am no longer a fan! Sorry,   , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , worknet8, com

    A wonderful poem! Series of inquisitions to God elevate the conceptualization to a lofty height. The first two lines of the second stanza lie at the centre around which the wheels of words revolve. A great work........10/10

    For a time, great E A Poe(t) we present, either grasping the sands of our lives events, or watching them flow, but to answer your question, " is all that we see or seem, But a dream within a dream? " No, in the instant of standing on the shore watching, we defy eternity, we are, and the moment devolves into the dream of memory.

    I stand amid the roar
    Of a surf-tormented shore,
    And I hold within my hand
    Grains of the golden sand-..... touching expression. This is a marvelous poem composed by Edgar Allan Poe.

    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..........//// beautiful poetic expression
