From Within Gleams Light Prominent
A poem written as an exercise of black-out poetry, from a page of The Fall of the House of Usher. Some of the word tenses have been changed from how they appear in Poe's work to maintain consistency.

Breathes warmth—perfect sincerity.

Delicate in its want of softness
Prevailing to convey change
Miraculous, in its wild
Arabesque of humanity—
