"Some sepulcher remote ..." Quote of Edgar Allan Poe

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Some sepulcher, remote, alone, Against whose portal she hath thrown, In childhood, many an idle stone— Some tomb from out whose sounding door She ne'er shall force an echo more, Thrilling to think, poor child of sin! It was the dead who groaned within.
