An Acrostic Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

An Acrostic

Rating: 3.0


Elizabeth it is in vain you say
'Love not' — thou sayest it in so sweet a way:
In vain those words from thee or L. E. L.
Zantippe's talents had enforced so well:
Ah! if that language from thy heart arise,
Breathe it less gently forth — and veil thine eyes.
Endymion, recollect, when Luna tried
To cure his love — was cured of all beside —
His folly — pride — and passion — for he died.

Most, that haven't studied literature, don't even know whom she is....that is saddening but the poem is remarkable.
