    I live near Poe Cottage, and when I see it, well, only Poe could express my feelings.

    I think POE was telling us to be weary of the other side of the ocean of dreams. That sand in the hand tells us of it's waywardness. (Report) Reply

    Oh, my sweet dear Poe, you have parted from us now, but your memory, your Dream lives on. We have not forgotton your final ammends, we shall take shelter within your words, take console within your sleep, your restful slumber. The grains of sand shall not escape our grasp, yet someday, when that day comes, it must. Poe, dark and dreary Poe, we possess common grounds, I promise not to dissapoint you. (Report) Reply

    In a dream,
    I saw a caged bird.
    When I woke up,
    you were near me
    fluttering

    I love Edgar Allan Poe! He stirs up everything inside me and only few authors and poets have been able to do that to me. Especially when I can relate. (Report) Reply

    In Poe's dark forbidding night
    When there can be no sight
    Of the dangers lurking near
    Of which there is much to fear.
    But in the inner peace of Poe
    With the scratch of pen, his words flow
    Capturing his tortured thoughts in kind
    A parable, to escape the world that binds,
    To set him free to dream
    Of that which is not as seem.

    As he awaits the judgement day.
