  • Artist Info: A Dream Within A Dream<br />
    <br />
    Take this kiss upon the brow!<br />
    And, in parting from you now,<br />
    Thus much let me avow-<br />
    You are not wrong, who deem<br />
    That my days have been a dream;<br />
    Yet if hope has flown away<br />
    In a night, or in a day,<br />
    In a vision, or in none,<br />
    Is it therefore the less gone?<br />
    All that we see or seem<br />
    Is but a dream within a dream.<br />
    <br />
    I stand amid the roar<br />
    Of a surf-tormented shore,<br />
    And I hold within my hand<br />
    Grains of the golden sand-<br />
    How few! yet how they creep<br />
    Through my fingers to the deep,<br />
    While I weep- while I weep!<br />
    O God! can I not grasp<br />
    Them with a tighter clasp?<br />
    O God! can I not save<br />
    One from the pitiless wave?<br />
    Is all that we see or seem<br />
    But a dream within a dream?<br />
    <br />
    Edgar Allan Poe<br />
