For today’s episode of Between Birds of Prey, we will make a musical journey through the world of dreams. We will meet a world filled with nightmares, but also with pleasant feelings and landscapes.
On the right we have the drawing ‘a dream within a dream’ by Seklusion – http://seklusion.com/?p=5132 – inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s poem:
A Dream Within a Dream
BY EDGAR ALLAN POE
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?
