To Helen: poem of the day

TO HELENBy Edgar Allan Poe Helen, thy beauty is to me Like those Nicéan barks of yore,That gently, o’er a perfumed sea, The weary, way-worn 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 wasContinue reading “To Helen: poem of the day”
