    To Edgar - whom I love in verse
    Whose soul has met a desperate curse
    Never to know his life's own worth

    To Edgar - whom I've longed to meet
    Whose purpose left him incomplete
    Whose very hand spelled out defeat

    To Edgar - who has come to fame
    Yet while he walked - it was in shame
    A haunted life - but not in vain

    To Edgar - whose shadow falls on my floor
    Whose unseen hands tap on my door
    Whose pen shall move.... ah.... NEVERMORE

    I don't know if E.A.P. was a believer in Christ Jesus, but I am and when I read a lot of his poems I take them to be speaking of t power of God... Anyone else get what I'm saying? If you do have a good understanding of God try reading them from a Christ-like perspective... Let me know what you think, my e-mail is, I'm rally interested in hearing what others have to say about this :)

    This is one of my favorite poems of all time too! I'm sure it's about his wife (Virginia Clemm, his first cousin) who he married when he was 27 and she was 13. They lived together with her mother, brother and... I forget who... from the time she was 7 too so I'm sure they must have had a crush on each other long before they were married. History says they adored each other. So apparently, she was literally a child when they fell in love and he was a child at heart. The 'Kingdom by the Sea' was Baltimore. He wasted away and died 2 years after she did.

    You all are talking bout edgar allan poe. Some good and some bad. Yes in peoples eyes some poems is good and some are bad and even depressing. But no matter what kind of comment you make just remember this. Mr. Poe is and always will be a legend. He is a good poet. Everyone knows he is. He made a name for him self. He followed his dream and it payed off in the end. and he made alot of money with his poetry. So befor you bring the man down just listen and dont judge a book by its cover.
    thank you

    I've been waiting a long time to tell you this...well actually not too long because I just found out about this website today, but still. You really bake my potato Edgar Allen Poe! You suck and your poems suck and your moustache sucks!

    I simply love the work of this buddy and his being a poet. I always read his poems with owe. My mother loved him the most though; it's where she got my first name. Had it not because of my brother's name Allan, my name would have been Edgar Allan Eslit.

    Edgar Allan Poe is most definately my favorite poet of all time. He's been so inspirational to me and it was his work that gave me the desire to write. He was a truly wonderful man.

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.
