The Sunday Posts 2012/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.

Total Inception. It makes me want to see that film again.

Thanks dbs.

Have you stopped commenting over on yours? - been a while....

Too bad brilliance is so rare these days.
