Description

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Civilian. Inspired by the poem, "The Happiest Day," by Edgar Allen Poe. Starring Andrew Calucag, Jodi York, and Will Tran (note: listen with good headphones or external speakers) The Happiest Day The happiest day —the happiest hour My seared and blighted heart hath known, The highest hope of pride and power, I feel hath flown. Of power! said I? Yes! such I ween But they have vanished long, alas! The visions of my youth have been — But let them pass. And pride, what have I now with thee? Another brow may ev'n inherit The venom thou hast poured on me — Be still my spirit! The happiest day —the happiest hour Mine eyes shall see —have ever seen, The brightest glance of pride and power I feel have been: But were that hope of pride and power Now offered with the pain Ev'n then I felt —the brightest hour I would not live again: For on its wings was dark alloy And as it fluttered —fell An essence —powerful to destroy A soul that knew it well.
