No more, like dew-drop from the grass...” (4). In this stanza the speaker wants to emphasize how people feel when they are dying. Death in Edgar Allan Poe’s work, leads to loss of innocence throughout the stories. In Poe’s work, death, the most extreme loss of innocence, leads Poe’s characters to feel guilt.

He also states it’s “The darkest evening of the year.” I take this as him reaching an all-time low of his depression and he has never felt this alone before.
