    If I could have read the title on another platform, I could have figured Kenny Rogers (country music artiste) was the subject.
    Poe's poems have a way of getting in me. I love this one.

    Its a lovely poem. Reading a poem I felt the poet had gone beyond the days of egoistic pride when one wants to possess the most valuable objects. Instead he find peace in humility by connecting with small and ordinary. It is a strong metaphor for how people find the charm of power diminishing while enjoying simple things. (Report) Reply

    I really like this poem. I sense the kinship Poe felt with the distant star. The moon is too near, too obvious, too attainable, too cliche. The poet reaches for something beyond, something more mysterious. I identify. (Report) Reply

    The lines of this poem are just tight and well woven like a mat; each line runs into the other, simply, without faltering.
    Quite a wonderful piece.

    Edgar Allan was a very mysterious poet and even his death, .. I think he inserted to this poem his feelings cause by many illness that he has. and gave his last cry at the stars and time to join them. (Report) Reply
