    • POEM: If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda (3/22/2009 7:38:00 PM)

      My favorite poem of all time. I love the beautiful words and the deep meaning. I think many people don't really understand the poem and I've posted comments before that provoked some interesting responses, so I'll try to make my point again in a different way... By summarizing this beautiful poem:
      1. I love you so much.
      2. If you stop loving me or get bored with me and move on, then I'll so the same.
      3. But if you still love me 5,10,20 or 50 years from now, then I'll still love you too and that would be a really cool thing.

      Isn't that type of love alot cooler than 'I'll love you forever, even if you leave me, stop loving me or get bored with me'?

    • POEM: I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud by William Wordsworth (9/6/2007 3:29:00 AM)

      There may be a deeper meaning, but I don't see it. To me, this poem is just one of the most simple and straitforward poems that I have read. Wordsworth simply tells us of an experience he had and what it meant to him, and he also points out that it is this type of experience that you don't know how valuable it will be to you when it happens; it is later, after you have used the memory of it to cheer you up many times in your life that you realize how much it affected you.

    • POEM: A Dream Within A Dream by Edgar Allan Poe (9/6/2007 3:00:00 AM)

      I have a tendancy to get something different from poems than most, so please forgive me if you dissagree, or if you don't like what I say. To me this poem is completely about the futility of all of our lifes actions. We place such importance on what we do and the events in our lives, when in reality they mean nothing. I see the message of this poem as very similar to Shakespere's 'life is but a walking shaddow' diatribe. 'You are not wrong, who deem
      That my days have been a dream; ' his days refer to his life and lifes actions, they are a dream is like saying that they don't matter. Dreams are gone as soon as you wake up, and they slip away fast. He tries to hold the grains of sand in his fingers, but they keep slipping away. The futile effort to do something more substancial than a dream.

      Thanks for listening, and please forgive any typos/missspellings :)
