Dreams

Oh! that my young life were a lasting dream!
My spirit not awakening, till the beam
Of an Eternity should bring the morrow.

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

    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

    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

    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...

    very cool and dramatic sounding and profound...wonder what made him think of that?
