Eulalie - Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

I dwelt alone
In a world of moan,
And my soul was a stagnant tide,
Till the fair and gentle Eulalie became my blushing bride-
Till the yellow-haired young Eulalie became my smiling bride.

Ah, less- less bright
The stars of the night
Than the eyes of the radiant girl!
That the vapor can make
With the moon-tints of purple and pearl,
Can vie with the modest Eulalie's most unregarded curl-
Can compare with the bright-eyed Eulalie's most humble and careless

Now Doubt- now Pain
Come never again,
For her soul gives me sigh for sigh,
And all day long
Shines, bright and strong,
Astarte within the sky,
While ever to her dear Eulalie upturns her matron eye-
While ever to her young Eulalie upturns her violet eye.

    The stars of the night
    Than the eyes of the radiant girl!
    That the vapor can make
    With the moon-tints of purple and pearl,
    Great poem.

    Edgar Allan Poe's been admired by so many for his originality to describe different situations. So, I want to also write down my love thoughts: . Hope you like it.

    Love’s a Strange Friend
    I’ve bet to love and lost again,
    Deep in heart, it’s not the same,
    Strange because he was a friend,
    Although, stops by now and then.

    Nights with no sleep, trouble in deep,
    Eyes to the sky, as sign of deny,
    Breathe with some fear, eye with a tear,
    Love stops by, now and then.

    Tracing your loved one, waiting to come,
    Sighting his face, no-way, no-why,
    Playful to you, teasing your glum,
    Tossing your blows, up to the sky.
