    You show some promise, but the archaic language lets you down. Try to read some good contemporary poets and expand your thoughts without the restriction of form.

    ........in my honest opinion, edgar allan poe should be in the top three of the top 500 poets...his work and achievement of so many masterpieces is truly outstanding...he has more than proven himself worthy of this special honor....and definitely, he has secured his place in history, as a leading poet of all time...I would love nothing more, than to see poe take a special seat beside shakespeare....and in conclusion, if you haven't read any of poe's work then you are in for a special treat....enjoy!

An Enigma

"Seldom we find," says Solomon Don Dunce,
"Half an idea in the profoundest sonnet.
Through all the flimsy things we see at once
As easily as through a Naples bonnet-
Trash of all trash!- how can a lady don it?
Yet heavier far than your Petrarchan stuff-
Owl-downy nonsense that the faintest puff
Twirls into trunk-paper the while you con it."
And, veritably, Sol is right enough.
