A Dream


In visions of the dark night
I have dreamed of joy departed-
But a waking dream of life and light

    Your poetic genius is undeniable. You are right. If we get clung to the past blues, the present and the future remain neglected and dark. We can see light and be successful in life onle if we learn lessons fron the past and act in the living present. I sum up as follows:

    We wander between night and day,
    At the other end there is a ray;
    Past might have gone wrong way,
    In the present you make hay.

    From the past you can take clues,
    You can overcome your blues,
    Turn your back to the past blues,
    Paint your future in colorful hues. (Report) Reply

    Edgar Allan Poe is an exquisite poet & writer. This poem proves my point. This man was an emotional & extremely educated man. I hate hearing people call him crazy or insane because some of his poems may be a little dreary, but in my opinion, Edgar Allan Poe is definately one of the most creative & greatest poets in history. Love this poem. (Report) Reply

    This poem is amazing. It always leaves me speechless. I have grown up on Edgar Allan Poe's work and find that many of them I like, but none of them make me feel the way that this one does. (Report) Reply

    Maybe he as he was a day dreamer or some kind of sleepwalker who lives in between two worlds...one real dark and painful world and one dark magical world creted by himself.I find no surprising he uses his extraordinary creation capability to make his hard life a little bit better.It was a gift for him to create a world we re we can submerge and scape ourselves from our ordinary lifes.

    Poor fellow, Edgar Allan Poe was melancholy in this poem and probably depressed. His subconscious dream probably took him back to the comfort of his family in infancy. Day dreaming, as he looked about him, though it seemed to be more encouraging, it didn't satisy his emotional needs. This is just a guess for the poem is a sad one. Elvira Davis (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
