    At the close of the first stanza, Poe declares that this is a dream within a dream. At the end pf the second stanza, he begs the question, Is this a dream within a dream? We each wrestle with the nature of existence, time, and how to reconcile our inevitable end. This poem has universal appeal. (Report) Reply

    I recommend my profile for some competition to Poe. Sublime poems without the pangs of sadness, mixtures of the urban and the sublime. (Report) Reply

    A nice, touching, sad and tragic poem.
    Our life is just a dream within a dream,
    that lasts but only a moment. (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
