Edgar Allen Poe is one of my favorite poets. Made this to honor his amazing poetry.

To The River

by Edgar Allen Poe

Fair river! in thy bright, clear flow

Of crystal, wandering water,

Thou art an emblem of the glow

Of beauty -- the unhidden heart --

The playful maziness of art

In old Alberto's daughter;

But when within thy wave she looks --

Which glistens then, and trembles --

Why, then, the prettiest of brooks

Her worshipper resembles;

For in my heart, as in thy stream,

Her image deeply lies -- The heart which trembles at the beam Of her soul-searching eyes.
