Did Poe's writings ever contain the words "Something Wicked This Way Comes"? Thanks

This expression, to my knowledge, does not appear in Poe's work, at least in this form. You may want to try "The Tragedy of Macbeth" by William Shakespeare. I believe it was a line spoken by the second or third witch. Also, I seem to recall a movie of recent origin by this title.

Thank You for the answer. I knew about McBeth, and the Movie. Thanks again.

I know this response probably isn't needed any longer, but you never know when someone else might need it. "Something Wicked this way comes" is also a book by Ray Bradbury. The movie you're talking about was based on this book.
