Elizabeth, it surely is most fit
[Logic and common usage so commanding]
In thy own book that first thy name be writ,
Zeno and other sages notwithstanding;

" Always write first things uppermost in the heart." /// First love is always alive in the mind along with the breath; Every first act of life thrills the worker and so everyone remembers it. Composed beautiful poems. Enjoyable poetry

Excellent poem. In other words right your thoughts. Dont worry about what DK Swain thinks or whether he is your uncle or not.

Pursuing the muses through the bowers of poet's truth. Well defined role. Well deserved classic poem of the day.

Each poet - if a poet - in pursuing The muses thro' their bowers of Truth or Fiction, Has studied very little of his part, Read nothing, written less - in short's a fool Endued with neither soul, nor sense, nor art, Great poem, thanks poet.

A fantastic poem but not one of Poe's greatest works.

Susan is correct that this poem is an acrostic. She mentions that the first letters of each line spell out the name Elizabeth. That is true, but if you keep reading, it also spells out the name Rebecca after that. However, then she says that the initials L.E.L. are in the third line. I don't see that. In fact, I can't find the letter L at all in the third line.

What a great basic truth for all poets or writers of any kind is revealed in his last line: Always write first things uppermost in the heart. Write what you know. Great advice for all.
