Samuel Taylor Coleridge

I know 'tis but a Dream, yet feel more anguish (fragment)

Samuel Taylor Coleridge was an English poet, literary critic and philosopher who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets.






I know 'tis but a Dream, yet feel more anguish
  Than if 'twere Truth. It has been often so:
  Must I die under it? Is no one near?
  Will no one hear these stifled groans and wake me?
