ALONE by Edgar Allan Poe

From my childhood's hour I have not been
As others were - I have not seen
As others saw - I could not bring
My passions from a common spring -
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow - I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone -
And all I lov'd - I lov'd alone -
Then - in my childhood - in the dawn
Of a most stormy life - was drawn
From evr'y depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still -
From the torrent, or the fountain -
From the red cliff of the mountain -
From the sun that round me roll'd
In its autumn tint of gold -
From the lighting of the sky
And it pass'd me flying by -
From the thunder,and the storm -
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view -
