Quotation by Edgar Allan Poe

Hast thou not dragged Diana from her car,
And driven the hamadryad from the wood
To seek a shelter in some happier star?

The elfin from the green grass, and from me
The summer dream beneath the tamarind tree?
Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849), U.S. poet. Sonnet—To Science (l. 9–16). . .
