"Is all that we see or seem But a dream within a dream?"

William Blake

"To See a World..."

(Fragments from "Auguries of Innocence")

To see a World in a Grain of Sand

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand

And Eternity in an hour.

Edgar Allan Poe "A Dream Within a Dream" (fragment)

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.
