To Helen

Rating: 3.6
Helen, thy beauty is to me
Like those Nicean barks of yore,
That gently, o'er a perfumed sea,
The weary, wayworn wanderer bore
To his own native shore.

On desperate seas long wont to roam,
Thy hyacinth hair, thy classic face,
Thy Naiad airs have brought me home
To the glory that was Greece
And the grandeur that was Rome.

This was the only poem by E.A.Poe selected for book I have called 100 Greatest Love Poems. Personally, I think Annabel Lee is a far more stirring, if melancholy, love poem, which would show off Poe's talents for the Macabre very well, but this is still very lovely, of course.
