    I've been studying English poems by myself, and found his works beautiful. I'm happy if you contact me cause I want to make friends on PoemHunter. My English is still rousy, but I want to write poems like his works.....

    I had to recite Poe in grade school, and taught me the beauty of words - music & meter. From memory:
    'Keeping time, time, time
    In a sort of runic rhyme
    To the tintinnabulation
    That so musically swells
    From the rhyming & the chiming
    Of the bells, bells, bells
    Bells, bells, bells, bells
    From the rhyming & the chiming
    Of the bells.'

    The first American Melancholy Master.

    You are not wrong, who deem
    That my days have been a dream;
    Yet if hope has flown away
    In a night, or in a day,
    In a vision, or in none,
    Is it therefore the less gone?
    All that we see or seem
    Is but a dream within a dream.

    I really think that Poe is one of the best poets out there. At LEAST #10 on my imaginary poet list. His poem The Raven is one of the most famous poems out there.

    He is a Goth
    His poems are sorrow

Best Poem of Edgar Allan Poe

Annabel Lee

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,

To M.L.S.

Of all who hail thy presence as the morning-
Of all to whom thine absence is the night-
The blotting utterly from out high heaven
The sacred sun- of all who, weeping, bless thee
Hourly for hope- for life- ah! above all,
For the resurrection of deep-buried faith
In Truth- in Virtue- in Humanity-
Of all who, on Despair's unhallowed bed
Lying down to die, have suddenly arisen
