Of an Eternity should bring the morrow.

    A beautiful poem is like a beautiful photograph of a sunset landscape or a beautiful painting. I can say the lines over and over again in my mind and elicit a reaction like the beauty of the latter. (Report) Reply

    Very Nice, and well scripted! With inspiration and yet the dismay of this life; it reveals the inner depth of living one's dream though it may never come to past because it is a matter of living in the mind or making one's mind become a matter of reality! Very Well Done! (Report) Reply

    It seems to me that both laureate poets on this site (Olivarez & Straw) have forgotten the fallacy of the poet as subject of his own poetry. Juan alleges that Poe was 'ruined' by his stepfather because he never got a free education courtesy of Mr Allen. Kevin insists that the 'decadent end of Romanticism' contributed to Poe's retreat into a dream world. And Eric, read again your comment that 'a dream of hopeless sorrow' surpasses 'cold reality'. Duh! that's just the point! (Report) Reply

    A small easily portable volume, with poems and short stories of Edgar Alan Poe, accompanied me upon younger days of travel, contrasting with different cultures and historical scenic sites. Later the 'Leaves Of Grass' by Walt Whitman also. To read and ponder masters like Poe and writings like 'from Song of Myself' by Walt Whitman gives voice to thoughts and questions generations of poets have no choice but to reflect upon. Their voices are an essential part of us. As they gave so we receive. We must ever return to the source of dreams to regenerate our souls. (Report) Reply

    This Dreams is light hearted and interesting too unlike his usual works that are expressed in a mysterious and suspense way! (Report) Reply

    The life of human beings, relates to something called dreams that considered as a prediction. We build our life upon it. we should have dreams with which our life become so sweet and nice (Report) Reply

    One could see POE, in a rapture of passion writing this poem. A euphoric state, of a dream like state, must have inspired him to write these dream like settings of words, in a dream like flow. Only to reach his depths of elevation (Report) Reply

    I absolutly LOVE Edgar Allen Poe... his work is amazing... and he was a very interesting man in life (from what I have read) ... dark, and sensative, with low self-esteem... sounds like we'd have great friends.. that is had I been blessed enough to know him, or even see him, or hear his voice... darn it sounds like I've got a crush on a dead guy, lol... but is he really dead? No. For we all live in through our words, and he has written many, many great words... (Report) Reply
