    I turned to thee proud evening star - yes, i always seek the warmth of Poe, and this is one of them; lifts me up and keeps me up (Report) Reply

    i liked how he described the moon. when the moon is full it is easy to see her cold smile. (Report) Reply

    I THINK HE DESCRIBED EVERYTHING IN THE POEM SO VIVIDLY THAT IT FELT LIKE I WAS LOOKING AT THE STARS WITH HIM. (Report) Reply

    it conjurs up the very sense of idle desire' Thy distant fire'. it's its own adversary. it lends it self easily to my world. it's an effortless beauty!

    loved the poem, loved the rhyming. poetry should be felt, you shouldn´t have to pick it apart and analize it to understand it. this is the exact tipe of poem that i can feel. (Report) Reply

    Not only interesting, but deservedly so. No cast-in-rock, died in the wool, changeless rule ethics should be applied to any art form. They only set needless boundaries to restrict creativity by sidetracking the mind's own path of freedom. To judge anyones work by these rules is therefore not worth the pot it's been pissed in. Read/Look/Feel for yourself and make your own choice; Like it, love it, loathe it or just appreciate the effort. By the way, Poe rocks! (My boat)

    It's interesting to note that this revered classic poet also writes poetry in which the rhyme and rhythm schemes are not consistent throughout the work. I believe I begin to see light (even moonlight!) . (Report) Reply

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
