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------

this and now I'm gona read more Edgar Allen Poe

about what he is talking about. I really like that. I really like this
poem, Poe is one of my top 5 favorite writers.

That slipping through his fingers..could be his loved ones? Many people
close to him did die, that is why he weeps.

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
saying?
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
