    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 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?
