Mysterious Star?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I read on a website that there was a poem written called "mysterious star" I can't find it anywhere though. I was wondering if anybody else could fine it... It would help a lot. Thanks

The poem you are referring to are some lines Poe added to the 1831 version of 'Al Aaraaf', sometimes published as a separate piece with the title 'Mysterious Star'. The lines are: Mysterious star!

Thou wert my dream

All a long summer night

Be now my theme!

By this clear stream,

Of thee will I write;

Meantime from afar

Bathe me in light!

Hope this helps.

That looks a mess, let me try again:

Mysterious star! Thou wert my dream All a long summer night Be now my theme! By this clear stream, Of thee will I write; Meantime from afar Bathe me in light!
