SONNETS FROM SERIES RELATING TO EDGAR ALLEN POE: 1, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When first I looked into thy glorious eyes
Last Line: Heaven deepening within heaven, serene and still.
Subject(s): Poe, Edgar Allan (1809-1849)


WHEN first I looked into thy glorious eyes,
And saw, with their unearthly beauty pained.
Heaven deepening within heaven, like the skies
Of autumn nights without a shadow stained,
I stood as one whom some strange dream enthralls;
For, far away in some lost life divine,
Some land which every glorious dream recalls,
A spirit looked on me with eyes like thine.
Even now, though death has veiled their starry light,
And closed their lids in his relentless night, --
As some strange dream, remembered in a dream,
Again I see, in sleep, their tender beam;
Unfading hopes their cloudless azure fill,
Heaven deepening within heaven, serene and still.
