    I am always astounded by Poe- he uses repetition to draw us into his world- a world of gray fog and grief for losses and yet his is a world expressed so beautifully and so powerfully that to read his poetry and his short stories is to carry them with you for the rest of your life.

    From what i understand his dream is about losing someone in a dream. A dream within a dream so to speak. Lovely poem, kind of creepy when you read deeper in though. (Report) Reply

    Very very nice poem! Totally heart touching! The poet has very well connected the reality with a dream. The reality is so harsh to suffer that the poem is dismissing it saying it is a dream, and what is happening in reality is a dream within a dream. Very beautiful! I loved it. (Report) Reply

    We are destined to die, to let go everything, though we think we have clasped fortune, time and opportunity everything is destined to slip away.Nicely penned. (Report) Reply

    exquisite...a white poem...about whiteness which could be serenity, sleep, rest, repose (Report) Reply

    I stand amid the roar
    Of a surf-tormented shore,
    And I hold within my hand
    Grains of the golden sand
    How few! yet how they creep
    I love this poem.
