POE’S CRITICS

A certain tyrant to disgrace

The more a rebel’s resting-place,

Compelled the people ever one

To hurl, inpassing there, a stone;

Which done, the rugged pile became

A sepulchre to keep the name.

 

And thus it is with Edgar Poe

Each passing critic has his throw,

Nor see, defeating his intent,

How lofty grows the monument.

JOHN B. TABB

EDGAR ALLAN POE — THE MAN

VOLUME II

Had I not Song?

Yea; and it lingers yet

The souls to fret

Of an ignoble throng,

Aflame with hate

Of the exculting Fate

That hurls their idols from her temple fair,

And shrines me there.

JOHN B. TABB
