To here all of ur comments about saying "I love it" and for you trying to
understand it is not being fair. To understand this poem completely one
must understand Poe's life. He lead one with mayn financial problems and
maybe that is why his poem is about the mechanicalism of nature.

i have read it only twice which is not enough for poe..i learned as a young
student that i must read poe many times for me to get the most out of
it..this poem to me means that since our real moments are constantly
fleeing by us and become immediately a thing of the past, that our life is
surreal in a sense like a dream...we really can't hold on to anything
forever like the sand pouring through his hands and quickly
vanishing...everything is in a constant flow of vanishing so it is like a
dream--yes our lives in a way is like one surreal moment after
another..i.e. like a dream within a dream------

fluttering poem, because i utterly despise those kinds, but then i read
this and now I'm gona read more Edgar Allen Poe
