Edgar Allan Poe

 Next Poem          

Beloved! amid the earnest woes
That crowd around my earthly path-
(Drear path, alas! where grows
Not even one lonely rose)-
My soul at least a solace hath
In dreams of thee, and therein knows
An Eden of bland repose.

And thus thy memory is to me
Like some enchanted far-off isle
In some tumultuous sea-
Some ocean throbbing far and free
With storms- but where meanwhile
Serenest skies continually
Just o'er that one bright island smile.

    Wow, isn't Edgar Allan Poe just a master of words? His depiction of the 'enchanted far-off isle' amidst 'some tumultuous sea' was really deep. Describes perfectly how sometimes we find peace in memories in the middle of life's chaos. His poems are always a whirlpool of emotions, and this one didn't disappoint! Really loved the poignant feel throughout. Poe never fails to take me on a roller coaster of feels!
