Gaily bedight, A gallant knight, In sunshine and in shadow, Had journeyed long, Singing a song, In search of Eldorado. But he grew old- This knight so bold- And o’er his heart a shadow Fell as he found No spot of ground That looked like Eldorado.

Silence - A Fable - Edgar Allan Poe - 1837 →
‘Ευδουσιν δ’ ορεων κορυφαι τε καί φάραγγες Πρωνες τε καί χαράδραι - ALCMAN. The mountain pinnacles slumber; valleys, crags and caves are silent. “LISTEN to me,” said the Demon, as he placed his hand upon my head. “The region of which I speak is a dreary region in Libya, by the borders of the river Zäire. And there is no quiet there, nor silence. “The waters of the river have a saffron and...
by Edgar Allan Poe By a route obscure and lonely, Haunted by ill angels only, Where an Eidolon, named NIGHT, On a black throne reigns upright, I have reached these lands but newly From an ultimate dim Thule- From a wild clime that lieth, sublime, Out of SPACE- out of TIME.

Philly's Poe Palooza
I visited the Poe museum in Philly today. I’ve been trying to go there for 4 years, and trust me, it was the worst wait. I was really scared that it wasn’t going to live up to my expectations, but it did! To get in, you knock on the locked door, and the most pleasant lady answers it. You step in to the gift shop, which has the cutest looking Poe dolls! When you look to your left,...
