¤¤¤ A Dream Within a Dream

Take this kiss upon the brow
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are nor wrong, who deem;
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 fewl 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?
