At morn- at noon- at twilight dim-

Maria! thou hast heard my hymn!

In joy and woe- 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!

The story behind the poem is that one day over the noisy din and clamor of the street Poe heard the clear ringing of a church bell. Intrigued, he followed the noise and arrived at a church staffed by the Jesuits. Going inside he asked the reason for the ringing of the bell. He was informed that the bell was being rung to signal the Angelus - the traditional noon-time prayer which reflects on Mary\'s \"yes\" to the announcement of the archangel Gabriel. He was inspired by this so he wrote this poem.

\'i think this oem is way too short to write an essay on\'
No poem is too short to write an essay on. Although it comes aross as quite cheerful and optomistic I think there are dark undertones for the future because alot of what he is saying is in past tense. I don\'t necesarily think it is about his marraige either because a poem can just be written because something has inspired you other than something in your life. I think it is about hope but with lack of optimism because this character doesnt seem to hold his past with the fondest of memories.

What concerns me more than the analysis of Poe\'s work is the absolute mutilation of the English language displayed within these posts.
4/20/10 post: First, a comma is needed after the introductory prepositional phrase. Next, one should NEVER refer to an author by only his first name! In the reference to Poe\'s cousin, numbers under 101 are written as words not numerals; also, (year) can be abbreviated as (yr.), and when describing one by age, it would be written as thirteen-year-old. Finally, this post is a run-on sentence; therefore, the two clauses need to be separate sentences, separated by a comma and conjunction or a semicolon.
2/11/10 post: The first sentence needs a capital \"I.\" Not is it just the first word of the sentence, but \"I\" is ALWAYS capitalized! In the second line, the contraction \"he\'s\" (he is) is used, but the apostrophe is missing. There are several other mistakes with this post. It is composed of several clauses, but proper punctuation to conjoin the clauses correctly is missing. (That could be considered an example of alliteration, by the way.)
I hope the latter posts, which shamed English just as much, can learn from the mistakes of the first two.

In this year 1835 Edgar married Virginia (his 13 yr old cousin) I think this poem is somehow related to their relationship.

i think the poem is saying that he is thinking about his love and now that he has someone and hes not "ALone" (alluding to alone) now he will stop thinking about his gloomy past and present and now he can look at his bright future

I think this poem means that the future is bright.It says to me that life is like a Hymn.tis a song about the radiance of life and how the future is shining brightly ahead.The poem says 'Now, when storms of Fate o'er cast
Darkly my Present and my Past'meaning that the present and past may be dark and bleak, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the future will be that way.The poem also states 'In joy and woe- in good and ill-
Mother of God, be with me still!' saying that even though there are sad and difficlut times there is also happiness still there. Poe says he found that happiness in God, and in sad times god is still there with him.
