Spirits Of The Dead

Rating: 4.0
Thy soul shall find itself alone
'Mid dark thoughts of the grey tomb-stone;
Not one, of all the crowd, to pry
Into thine hour of secrecy.

Be silent in that solitude,
Which is not loneliness- for then
The spirits of the dead, who stood
In life before thee, are again
In death around thee, and their will
Shall overshadow thee; be still.

This is one of my favorite poems of Poe. Beautiful, yet haunting; simple, yet harrowing.

Very carefully crafted in traditional meter with simple rhyming, which I like because it puts music to his verse. It is aspirational, or what we might call, wishful thinking. The mock Shakespearean tone, using antique pronouns such as thy is a cute touch to make his solemn subject biblical, but it is a hopeful piece by a gifted pen man.
