I'm sorry dear, but this poem, "Thanatopsis", is not by Edgar Allan Poe but by William Cullen Bryant. I wish I could help, alas, my area is Poe.

Good luck,

Thanatopsis is a poem about the goodness of death. Byrant talks about how we become part of nature (the soil) after death. Social groups no longer matter. The rich, the poor, the old, and the young are all the same. death should be praised.
