[Text: Edgar Allan Poe, "[Song of Triumph]," Southern Literary Messenger, March 1836, p. 237.]

[Song of Triumph]

Who is king but Epiphanes ?
Say do you know ?
Who is king but Epiphanes?
Bravo bravo!
There is none but Epiphanes,
No there is none :
So tear down the temples,
And put out the sun !
Who is king but Epiphanes ?
Say do you know ?
Who is king but Epiphanes ?
Bravo bravo !

[This version shows the poem as it was first published, as part of the tale "Epimanes." Unlike "The Haunted Palace" and "The Conqueror Worm," also used as part of a tale, Poe never collected this poem outside of the story.]
