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?

Thank you!

My son likes this one too - its the 2nd or 3rd one - all of my family are *very* hard to please :-) And of course they all would like different music from me as well.... :shock:

the glasses went because I thought - who cares about traxinspace at modplug.

But....

here is the original

Very good, clones! Nice background for the images of the street shifting fast as you're going to the place of work.
P.S. Should I blame E.A.P. for the short duration?  :D

Hi Nahkranoth, thanks for the listen, comment and liking.



The poem is in its entirety and the song is almost 4 minutes long :-)

Those 4 mins passed like 40 seconds, and it definitely means that the track is GOOD!!!111

I don't know how to critique but I'll just say this is excellent.  Artfully spoken and perfect backing music clones.

Thanks a lot for the bumps Chris :)

In case you run out of ideas, about what should be narrated next, maybe Shelley's "Ozymandias" or Blake's "Tyger" would be a nice choice ;)

I really enjoy these pieces. It's interesting how spoken word can do magic.

This is a very impressive - and expressive - piece of work. Well done!

Hi Oliwerko,

You are welcome for the bump, my pleasure.

I tagged all of the spoken word / poetry pieces on my blog for you. If you follow this link you will find them. I have 22 on my blog though I think there are more lurking around.

http://chrisvaisvil.com/?cat=22

I'll look at your suggested texts. I have not read either author so I'm looking forward to that!

@The Caller - thank you very much!!

I owe some listening to this site. I will try to get to that in the next couple weeks. I'm pretty busy these days - I do not mean to be rude - everyone who posts here at Modplug invariably has music I learn something from and enjoy.

Chris
