"Thou wast all that to me, love,
For which my soul did pine,
A green isle in the sea, love,
A fountain and a shrine,
All wreathed with fairy fruits and flowers,
And all the flowers were mine. ...

Ah, dream too bright to last!
Thou starry Hope that didst arise
But to be overcast!" ... [1]

Quoting these lines of morbid poetry, they say she went to walk, disregarding all protestations of the unsuitability of the weather. Indeed it was a dark and stormy night, but the sleety showering rain could not keep her within doors.

A tradesman saw her standing soaking wet at the cliffside as he hurried for the hostel gate. He merely shrugged. "Nutter" he muttered.

She never returned but they say she still walks the hostel halls.

p.s. Depending on my mood, sometimes I like Poe. Sometimes he just irritates me. I compare him to Austen, whose heroines collide with the tragedies in their lives without being defeated. Much more sensible.
