To start with an old Poe Project to share with you -
 I made this fat page three or four years ago.

But now...

Thank you to those of you who entered my little competition...

Sorry that there was a typo in the original post - the question became:

The revised version of a poem Poe originally composed in the 1820s  was published in 1849, "A _____ Within a _____". What is the one word that goes in both blanks?

That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away

Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand--
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep--while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

So, I put all the names in a hat - and the one that came out was...


Please email me your address and I will put the canvas in the post...

Happy Crafting!
