Quotation by Edgar Allan Poe

"Avaunt! to-night my heart is light. No dirge will I upraise.
"But waft the angel on her flight with a paean of old days!
"Let no bell toll!—lest her sweet soul, amid its hallowed mirth,
"Should catch the note, as it doth float up from the damned Earth.
"To friends above, from fiends below, the indignant ghost is riven—
"From Hell unto a high estate far up within the Heaven—
"From grief and groan, to a golden throne, beside the King of
Heaven."
Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849), U.S. poet. Lenore. . .
