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!

Notes:

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.
