i believe this poem is saying that you can't change destiny. you can't fix
what is meant to happen.

I really don't get this poem --- it's pretty sad b/c i'm a teacher. I teach
PAP and AP English in high school, but I still don't get this poem at all!
It's really deep, I can tell, but it is too deep, you know what I'm
Anyways... people that are confused about this poem, just think of me. I'm
an english teacher and I don't even get this poem lol

You think it is just a boring poem but read at least 2 times and you will
see how deep and meaningful this poem really is. This is one of those poems
that kinda is telling us what happened in his life. It is also telling us
what has happened we can't really reverse. We can't grasp the things that
has pasted. And what is now, is all we can hold onto.

This is a beautiful poem that reflects many characteristics of romantic
literature. It puts heavy emphasis on nature which is one of the major
points of romanticism. It is well written in the melanchololy style that is
Poe's style.

This is one of my favorite poems, but of its metaphysical undertones.
Typical of the genius that was Poe, he used is emotions about the person he
was addressing to convery a deeper and more penetrating question.....that
is, our lives are really just dreams and we exist in a universe that at
times does not seem real. Many people experience this feeling where they
cannot tell their waking life from that of their sleeping or dream life.
Its quite a profound and powerful poem and touches me very deeply and every
human spirit in that moment in time when we realize we are both mortal, and
our time in this world is so short and that sense of haunting timeless that
drives our lives is a very real and universla feeling we all experience
between the joyous distractions that fill the days of our live. Thats what
this poem means to me
