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.
