While he was editing this paper he
own wrote verses wnicn ne eeni 13
the magazines. They invariably cam
back with polite rejection slips. Fi
nally it occurred to him that if he
were to write something over a name
already famous it would be received
without question, regardless of its
mtrits. To test it, he wrote a poem in
the Btyle of Edgar Allen Poe, under
the title or "Leonalnle." This was
published in the Kokomo Dispatch of
Kokomo.'Jnd., Aug. 2, 1877, as a hither
to unpublished poem of Edgar Allen
Here is the poem:
"Leonainie" angels named her;
And they took the light
Of the laughing star and framed her
In a smile of white:
And they made her hair of gloomy
Midnight, and her eyes of bloomy
Moonshine, and they brought her to me
In the solemn night.
In a solemn night of summer, ,
When my heart of gloom
Blossomed up to greet the comer
Like a rose in bloom;
I forgot as Joy caressed me
All forebodings that distressed me
I forgot as joy caressed me
(Lying joy! that caught and pressed
In the arms of doom!)
Only apake the little whisper
In the angel-tongue.
Yet I, listening, heard her whisDer.
"Songs are only sung
Here below that they may grieve you
Tales but told to deceive you
So must Lonalnie leave you
While her love is young."
Then God smiled and it was morning.
Matchless and supreme;
Heaven's glory seemed adorning
Earth with its esteem;
Every heart but mine seemed rifted
j With the voice of prayer, and lifted
Where my Leonainie drifted
From me like a dream.
From a fac-e!mlle of a few lines of
a Poe manscript Samuel Richards, an
artist friend of Riley, copied the poem
in pale ink on the fly-leaf of an old
Ainsworta Latin-English dictionary
from the library or a lawyer in Ander
son. I Thus fortified, the Kokomo editor
was prepared to satisfy any doubters.
I But the only doubter was Riley hlm
jselt In h's own paper he analyzed
I the poem and pointed out phrases.
etc., which, as he said, showed that it
wag improbable that Poe had written
it. But this only provoked the editor
of the rival naner in Anderson to
j more earnest championship of its authenticity.
