    This is a beautiful poem. It is both sad, with the death of his love, and unnerving, with the necrophilia. A masterpiece. (Report) Reply

    Ahh my lovely Edgar Alenn, he is such a talented writer, be he not with us, I am sure he is writing in his after life. He is my idol and I envy the woman who inspired this piece of his work. I wish myself that I could find something so beautiful as to inspire a poem such as this. (Report) Reply

    This poem is amazing. It's beautiful, yet it has a sad tone to it. I envy both the love and the conveyor of that love... (Report) Reply

    A love so brilliantly stated that it draws my envy as well, ... both in terms of the love they shared, as well as the elegance in which it was written. (Report) Reply

    Great poem. I had a friend who would recite every chance he got. It got annoying, but I still enjoy the rythum. (Report) Reply

    This is my all time favorite poem, and Poe is the master craftsman, the bar of perfection to which I aspire, the genius who understood that every word must be carefully chosen to create atmosphere and to achieve a specific end. (Report) Reply

    This poem is the saddest and most beautiful I have ever heard. It really gets to me. I first heard it when I was in HIgh school in the orchestra. We played the piece of music that was based on the poem and it was hauntingly beautiful.

    Poe is without a doubt the best poet of all eternity. His use of words convey to use a world we can only dream of. This poem is full of wonder. His poems make you want to turn away and read more all at the same time. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
