An Engima-by Edgar Allan Poe-Novels and Ebooks

Novel Name: An Enigma

Written by: Edgar Allan Poe

Category: Potery

“Half an idea in the profoundest sonnet.
Through all the flimsy things we see at once
As easily as through a Naples bonnet–
Trash of all trash!–how _can_ a lady don it?
Yet heavier far than your Petrarchan stuff–
Owl-downy nonsense that the faintest puff
Twirls into trunk-paper the while you con it.”
And, veritably, Sol is right enough.
The general tuckermanities are arrant
Bubbles–ephemeral and _so_ transparent–
But _this is_, now–you may depend upon it–
Stable, opaque, immortal–all by dint
Of the dear names that lie concealed within’t.
