Last night was a spooky night here at Centerbrooke.
Edgar Allan Poe came to visit. The room was dark lit only by flickering candlelight. A few ravens sat around here and there.
Mr. Poe spoke of his upbringing and how he loved his young wife, how she influenced him to write 'Annabelle Lee'.
He told of how people thought he was MAD.
He read The Raven and a couple others.
He ended with 'The Tell-Tale Heart'.
It was a delightful hour spent with 'Mr. Poe'.
With my 'pet raven' on my shoulder, I had my picture made with E. A. P.
I have not followed Poe's writings. Remembered the poem, 'The Raven' but little else. Now, I have to read some of his work.
