Hungry for a bit more Poe?  This little known poem was composed when he was only 20 years old.  It was not published until 1875, 26 years after his death.  This brief poem reveals a fascinating glimpse into Poe’s outlook, and to me is one of the most haunting pieces he ever wrote.  It is called “Alone.”  Enjoy.
