A Dream Within A Dream By Edgar Allen Poe.Take this kiss upon the brow!And, in parting from you now,You are not wrong, who deemThat my days have been a dream;Yet if hope has flown awayIs it therefore the less gone?Is but a dream within a dream.Of a surf-tormented shore,And I hold within my handGrains of the golden sand-How few! yet how they creepThrough my fingers to the deep,While I weep- while I weep!Oh God! Can I not grasp them with a tighter clasp?Oh God! Can I not grasp them with a tighter clasp?
Is all that we see or seem？But a dream within a dream？
