A Dream Within A Dream

INCEPTION – A Dream Within A Dream
Anlässlich meines Kinobesuchs von Inception folgen hier die passenden Zeilen von Edgar Allan Poe. Der Film war gut und das Gedicht von Poe ist selbstverständlich auch genial. Über Poe selbst wird es demnächst einen Film geben – The Raven. Hauptrolle wird John Cusack spielen. Den werde ich mir als Poe ‚Fan‘ natürlich ansehen.

Jetzt was zum Nachdenken…

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.

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?
