    Reminds me sort of an imagination within an imagination. Poe is so good. (Report) Reply

    Nobody can save the other, we can only show our example and if they want to take it, it is good. We cannot play god. (Report) Reply

    An enchanting poem about death and parting, but also life itself.
    How right Poe is when he says All that we see os seem is but a dream within a dream.
    There is no end to the depth of its philosophical meaning. (Report) Reply

    Ingenious... Poe is my favourite author forever. Not only a true genius, but also, an unhappy creature who suffered his entire lifetime and died still young - and in very tragic and mysterious circumstances, and he was misinterpreted and attacked even after his death... He was poor and lonely, and all his life was a great tragedy - in some way his personality and his biography are very close to my own reality and I really love his writings, too. This one in particular, along with some other poems and tales of his. Although I generally like all his poetry and prose. (Report) Reply

    A depth, beauty and truth! Evoking emotion, memories, touch. A great questioning and reflection on our lives and its course.

    You are not wrong, who deem
    That my days have been a dream;

    So true! Beautiful and powerful speaking my story.
    In trying to grasp control and understanding, we are often pulled into tense struggles and frustrations. Those which we conquer and succeed lead to our enlightenment and wisdom meanwhile inability to cope destroys us. (Report) Reply

    Fab...i'm a fan of the last 2 lines...a tale which reflects man's helplessness and mortality. (Report) Reply

    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?

    I love these phrases and how they call out to me. The things/ people that I hold so dear, will eventually pass away just like how the sand passes through his hands. If only I can hold them tight to me forever, but I myself will also come to pass. All will be gone as time passes, and it will be just like a dream within a dream. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
