    grammar & punctuation is not correct and 'the' is 'thy' form what I recall from 5th grade. I recited this in front of an audience of my classmates, it was a big hit! As an author, I keep myself busy attempting Poe's greatness in poetry. Of course, that's impossible to attain.

    Poe, the master, what a great poem it flows smoothly and is a pleasure to read.also read my A Zephyr is Blowing you'll like it.

    Poe fans may be familiar with Alan Parson's Project 'Tales of Mystery & Imagination' concept album based on Poe's work,10 +++ in my opinion, same rating for the poem too of course! ..the album has a track named after this poem..if only I had a CD player now..I ought to buy one.
