    DissyLove, you beat me to it, sweetheart. The Cask of Amontillado is absolutely my favorite short story of all time.

    (It's only a coincidence that it just so happens to be the literary world's only perfect coldblooded murder how-to manual, honest.)

    I'm glad so many of you are enjoying this. I may have to curl up with one of my Poe books tonight and enjoy some of his dark, foreboding tales... Sigh...

    Annabel Lee

    ANNABEL LEE



    by Edgar Allan Poe
    (1849)




    It was many and many a year ago,
    In a kingdom by the sea,
    That a maiden there lived whom you may know
    By the name of ANNABEL LEE;--
    And this maiden she lived with no other thought
    Than to love and be loved by me.
    She was a child and I was a child,
    In this kingdom by the sea,
    But we loved with a love that was more than love--
    I and my Annabel Lee--
    With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
    Coveted her and me.
    And this was the reason that, long ago,
    In this kingdom by the sea,
    A wind blew out of a cloud by night
    Chilling my Annabel Lee;
    So that her high-born kinsman came
    And bore her away from me,
    To shut her up in a sepulchre
    In this kingdom by the sea.
    The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
    Went envying her and me:--
    Yes! that was the reason (as all men know,
    In this kingdom by the sea)
    That the wind came out of a cloud, chilling
    And killing my Annabel Lee.
    But our love it was stronger by far than the love
    Of those who were older than we--
    Of many far wiser than we-
    And neither the angels in Heaven above,
    Nor the demons down under the sea,
    Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee:--
    For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
    And the stars never rise but I see the bright eyes
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
    And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
    Of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride,
    In her sepulchre there by the sea--
    In her tomb by the side of the sea.

    ELIZABETH
    by Edgar Allan Poe
    (1850)


    Elizabeth, it surely is most fit [Logic and common usage so commanding]
    In thy own book that first thy name be writ,
    Zeno and other sages notwithstanding;
    And I have other reasons for so doing
    Besides my innate love of contradiction;
    Each poet - if a poet - in pursuing
    The muses thro' their bowers of Truth or Fiction,
    Has studied very little of his part,
    Read nothing, written less - in short's a fool
    Endued with neither soul, nor sense, nor art,
    Being ignorant of one important rule,
    Employed in even the theses of the school-
    Called - I forget the heathenish Greek name
    [Called anything, its meaning is the same]
    "Always write first things uppermost in the heart."
    ~Bobby Jack

    Definitely. Always go for the laugh, and as much as I dig EAP, he could have used some comic relief.

    Spirits of the Dead (1827)

    I thought I'd make my 4,000 post related to something I thoroughly enjoy and what's better than another Poe poem posted in the Poe thread I started? Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy ol' Ed.

    Thy soul shall find itself alone
    'Mid dark thoughts of the grey tomb-stone;
    Not one, of all the crowd, to pry
    Into thine hour of secrecy.

    Be silent in that solitude,
    Which is not loneliness- for then
    The spirits of the dead, who stood
    In life before thee, are again
    In death around thee, and their will
    Shall overshadow thee; be still.

    The night, though clear, shall frown,
    And the stars shall not look down
    From their high thrones in the Heaven
    With light like hope to mortals given,
    But their red orbs, without beam,
    To thy weariness shall seem
    As a burning and a fever
    Which would cling to thee for ever.

    Now are thoughts thou shalt not banish,
    Now are visions ne'er to vanish;
    From thy spirit shall they pass
    No more, like dew-drop from the grass.

    The breeze, the breath of God, is still,
    And the mist upon the hill
    Shadowy, shadowy, yet unbroken,
    Is a symbol and a token.
    How it hangs upon the trees,
    A mystery of mysteries!

    Another one I wanted to share...

    Evening Star
    (1827)

    'Twas noontide of summer,
    And mid-time of night;
    And stars, in their orbits,
    Shone pale, thro' the light
    Of the brighter, cold moon,
    'Mid planets her slaves,
    Herself in the Heavens,
    Her beam on the waves.
    I gazed awhile
    On her cold smile;
    Too cold- too cold for me-
    There pass'd, as a shroud,
    A fleecy cloud,
    And I turned away to thee,
    Proud Evening Star,
    In thy glory afar,
    And dearer thy beam shall be;
    For joy to my heart
    Is the proud part
    Thou bearest in Heaven at night,
    And more I admire
    Thy distant fire,
    Than that colder, lowly light.
    ~Bobby Jack
