A Dream

In visions of the dark night

I have dreamed of joy departed -

but a waking dream of life and light

hath left me broken-hearted.


Ah! what is not a dream by day

to him, whose eyes are cast

on things around him, with a ray

turned back upon the past?


That holy dream - that holy dream,

while all the world were chiding,

hath cheered me as a lovely beam -

a lonely spirit guiding.


What though that light, thro' storm and night,

so trembled from afar -

what could there be more purely bright

in Truth's day-star?


 - Edgar Allan Poe
