A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM by s-caruso A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM by s-caruso
A Dream within a Dream, Edgar Allan 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?

Seeing the picture I thought of the giant Ägir first, but the poem fits also very nice

Very nice. For me a line from the song "Sweat" from Tool came to mind. Maybe Maynard had been reading Poe.
