Alone

Rating: 4.4
From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

Considering a lot of pains he faced during his life, his loneliness is understandable. The references to nature in relation to personal moods are wonderful.

It is a great lyrical poem, though it reads like a sonnet. Splendid!

I appreciate Edgar's depiction of exclusion.It better suits this era where a certain way of life has been sculpted to blanket every human. Whether its humane at all that is yet to be seen.
