Text: Edgar Allan Poe, “[Song of Triumph],” Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque, 1840, p. 14

[[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!
