A Dream Within A Dream: Edgar Allan Poe

Posted on: 14 February 2007

.

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 LIKE IT.

Profoundly beautiful.

Happy Valentines Day

a >——-<---<@ for you.

So nice and the pics go well.

Och, poor wee Gavin.

And how about that picture, eh? Eyes, stubble, crooked teeth, YUM.

Poem fits really well, and the pix are well-chosen as usually. It’s the way you see things Ann.

Wonderful. Alas, poor Gavin….

Awesome!

YOU’RE MAKING ME CRY

This was incredible Ann. 🙂
