    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

A Dream Within A Dream

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
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 stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
...

To Helen - 1848

I saw thee once- once only- years ago:
I must not say how many- but not many.
It was a July midnight; and from out
A full-orbed moon, that, like thine own soul, soaring,
Sought a precipitate pathway up through heaven,
There fell a silvery-silken veil of light,
With quietude, and sultriness, and slumber,
Upon the upturned faces of a thousand
Roses that grew in an enchanted garden,
