Text: Edgar Allan Poe, "Spiritual Song," manuscript, 1836





Spiritual Song
————

Hark, echo! — Hark; echo!
    'Tis the sound
Of archangels, in happiness wrapt









Notes:

According to James. H. Whitty, who first published this poem, the manuscript was found about 1908 in Poe's desk from the Southern Literary Messenger. A facsimile of the poem is available in Whitty's The Complete Poems of Edgar Allan Poe, Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1911, p. 138.
