This was my favorite poem growing up. After playing with tattoo ideas for a while when this one hit me, so I went with it, and it became my first tattoo.
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.
– Edgar Allan Poe, A Dream Within A Dream
Yesterday would have been Poe’s 300th 200th birthday! I can count.
