The end of the second poem Poe wrote called To Helen:

They have not left me (as my hopes have) since;
They follow me they lead me through the years.
They are my ministers yet I their slave.
Their office is to illumine and enkindle
My duty, to be saved by their bright light,
And purified in their electric fire,
And sanctified in their elysian fire.
They fill my soul with Beauty (which is Hope,)
And are far up in Heaven the stars I kneel to
In the sad, silent watches of my night;
While even in the meridian glare of day
I see them still two sweetly scintillant
Venuses, unextinguished by the sun!

I think this photo might be overlooked if the audience is speedily clicking through images to vote. They would only be missing out because this photo has much more depth than meets the instant eye. Well done.
