Edgar Allan Poe - Alone

Omdat ik gek ben op zijn verhalen en gedichten, en deze toch wel geweldig is:


From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were - I have not seen
As others saw - I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I lov'd, I lov'd alone.
Then- in my childhood - in the dawn
Of a most stormy life - was drawn
From ev'ry depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain
From the sun that 'round me roll'd
In its autumn tint of gold - 
From the lightning in the sky
As it pass'd me flying by - 
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of  a demon in my view

Hoewel ik zelf een blij en vrolijk persoontje ben, vind ik het 'zware' van Edgar A Poe nog steeds iets erg moois hebben.
