Fanciful Twist Halloween Blog Party... {A poem from my Edgar}


A Dream within a Dream
Edgar Allen Poe
 
 
 
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?   
 


Happy Hauntings Dear Friends!

You just can't beat a bit of Poe, especially at Halloween.

Literary Hallow's Eve Parties featuring Mr. Poe as the guest speaker are always the best. <3

Wonderful pictures, I think he'd approve. :)
