A Good Read

The Alpha challenge at the Craft Barn is now on the letter "J".  I have chosen two words - Journey and Journal.  They seem to go together don't you think?

So now I take you on a little journey into darkness and the journal pages I have created to honor our guide, the amazing Edgar Allan Poe.

WHAT!?!  You have not read Poe?  How could that be?  I still remember when I read THE TELL- TALE HEART  and  THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM .   But my all time favorite is the poem THE RAVEN first published in 1845.

"Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
  Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
  While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
  As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door -
  'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, 'tapping at my chamber door -
  Only this , and nothing more.'

Now you will have to read this rest of this amazing poem.

Thanks to everyone who follow my efforts and to all who leave such super comments.
