To one in Paradise

I am rather pleased with this digi page, it is the first time I have digitally coloured a digi stamp...I've still got to practice far more before it's a decent standard, but I am pleased with my first attempt. This page has been made for the challenge at Haunted design house, Poe was certainly a ronantic even if he wasn't exactly blessed with luck when it came to love.

I have used 2 digi stamps from smeared ink, the poem was copied from the net here I used craft artist to put the page together.

As the poem isn't very eay to read on this picture here it is.
Thou wast all that to me, love,
    For which my soul did pine-
A green isle in the sea, love,
    A fountain and a shrine,
All wreathed with fairy fruits and flowers,
    And all the flowers were mine.

Ah, dream too bright to last!
    Ah, starry Hope! that didst arise
But to be overcast!
    A voice from out the Future cries,
"On! on!"- but o'er the Past
    (Dim gulf!) my spirit hovering lies
Mute, motionless, aghast!

For, alas! alas! me
    The light of Life is o'er!
    "No more- no more- no more-"
(Such language holds the solemn sea
    To the sands upon the shore)
Shall bloom the thunder-blasted tree
    Or the stricken eagle soar!

And all my days are trances,
    And all my nightly dreams
Are where thy grey eye glances,
    And where thy footstep gleams-
In what ethereal dances,
    By what eternal streams.
