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

Spiritual Song

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


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.
