A Valentine - Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

For her this rhyme is penned, whose luminous eyes,
Brightly expressive as the twins of Leda,
Shall find her own sweet name, that nestling lies
Upon the page, enwrapped from every reader.
Search narrowly the lines!- they hold a treasure
Divine- a talisman- an amulet
That must be worn at heart. Search well the measure-
The words- the syllables! Do not forget
The trivialest point, or you may lose your labor
And yet there is in this no Gordian knot
Which one might not undo without a sabre,
If one could merely comprehend the plot.
Enwritten upon the leaf where now are peering
Eyes scintillating soul, there lie perdus
Three eloquent words oft uttered in the hearing
Of poets, by poets- as the name is a poet's, too,
Its letters, although naturally lying
Like the knight Pinto- Mendez Ferdinando-
Still form a synonym for Truth- Cease trying!
You will not read the riddle, though you do the best you can do.

    To translate the address, read the first letter of the first line in connection with the second letter of the second line, the third letter of the third line and so on to the end. The name will thus appear.
    It will say- Frances Sargent Osgood.
    Nice poem, smart and beautiful. (Report) Reply

    The riddle of the poem is quite simple, but well done, nonetheless. Certainly more than I could do, and it shows a side of Poe often not looked upon, and that is his romantic side. Not a truly fantastic poem, but enjoyable nonetheless. (Report) Reply
