CASology Challenge #211: Dream - 2nd Card by Bibi
Here's my second entry for this week's challenge at CASology. I guess this card won't make much sense if you're not familiar with Edgar Allan Poe's poem "Dream Within a Dream", so I'll post it below my photo.
My my first card for this challenge was inspired by the same poem, and one thing led to another:
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?
- Edgar Allan Poe
When I was around 18, the German band Propaganda used Poe's poem in one of their songs.
You can hear it on youtube here.
