Celebrate Poetry Month With Evan E.

Posted by Evan E.

Sonnet Silence (1840)
by Edgar Allen Poe

There are some qualities - some incorporate things,
That have a double life, which thus is made
A type of that twin entity which springs
From matter and light, evinced in sold and shade.
There is a two-fold Silence - sea and shore-
Body and soul.  One dwells in lonely places,
newly with grass o'ergrown; some solemn graces,
Some human memories and tearful lore,
Render him herrorless; his name's "No More."
He is the corporate Silence: dread him not!
No power hath he of evil in himself;
But should some urgent fatae (untimely lot!)
Bring thee to meet his shadow (nameless elf,
That haunteth the lone regions where hath trod
no foot of man, ) commend thyself to God!
