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 save, one from the pitiless wave? Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream? ~Edgar Allan Poe, 1809-1849~
