Poetry Friday: The Conqueror Worm by Edgar Allen Poe

Lo! 't is a gala night
Within the lonesome latter years.
An angel throng, bewinged, bedight
In veils, and drowned in tears,
Sit in a theatre to see
A play of hopes and fears,
While the orchestra breathes fitfully
The music of the spheres.

[ . . . ]

That motley drama - oh, be sure
It shall not be forgot!

- from The Conqueror Worm by Edgar Allen Poe

I chose those lines in honor of Spring Awakening, which closes tomorrow night. I'm going to miss our motley drama.

Read the entire poem here.
