Ode to Edgar Allen Poe

Written for:  dVerse poets
Write an ode to a specific poet (dead or alive) or to poets in general.


Mellifluous stanzas of verse
flowed from your pen,
immortalizing ravens,
pealing bells, and the state
of being alone.

Perhaps your black tales came
from the fumes of the whiskey
you consumed, or, simply
from a place deep within you.

In your dreams within dreams,
we find still, the hope of love.



About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
