The quote in question comes from the first paragraph of the tale "Eleonora", first printed in 1841 in The Gift for 1842. The tale can be found on-line at the Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore web site at

I seem to recall he once used this or, at least, a paraphrase of it in his personal correspondence but I could very well be mistaken.
