The Works of the Late Edgar Allan Poe
Volume II. Poems and Tales





At morn — at noon — at twilight dim — 
Maria! thou hast heard my hymn!
In joy and wo — in good and ill — 
Mother of God, be with me still!
When the Hours flew brightly by,
And not a cloud obscured the sky,
My soul, lest it should truant be,
Thy grace did guide to thine and thee;
Now, when storms of Fate o'ercast
Darkly my Present and my Past,
Let my Future radiant shine
With sweet hopes of thee and thine!
