THE POEMS OF EDGAR ALLAN PQE TEXT OF THE POEMS TAMERLANE Kind solace in a dying hour! Such, father, is not (now) my theme — I will not madly deem that power Of Earth may jjhrive me of the sin Unearthly pride hath revelPd in — I have no time to dote or dream: The text of 1827, inasmuch as it exhibits radical variations from the text adopted here (that of 1845), is reproduced in the footnotes in its entirety. Following this the variants for the rest of the printed texts are given. Italics are used in the footnotes to indicate the verbal variations from the adopted text (except that in the case of variants already in italics, a heavy- faced type is used). A list of the different volumes and periodicals in which each of the poems originally appeared is given in the Notes at the end of the volume.

You call it hope — that fire of fire! It is but agony of desire: If I can hope — oh, God I I can — Its fount is holier — more divine — 10 I would not call thee fool, old man, But such is not a gift of thine. Know thou the secret of a spirit Bow'd from its wild prideinto shame. O yearning heart! I did inherit 15 Thy withering portion with the fame, The searing glory which hath shone Amid the jewels of my throne, Halo of Hell! and with a pain Not Hell shall make me fear again — 20 O craving heart, for the lost flowers And sunshine of m...
