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 -  (1808 - 1849) American writer, editor, and literary critic

Hermann Hesse (1877-1962) German-born poet, novelist, and painter. Much of his writings explores the individual's search for authenticity, self-knowledge and spirituality. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1946.
