A Poe-flavored Independence Day…

For those of you who think that E.A. Poe had nothing to do with America besides heritage, you might be interested to know he did serve two years in the U.S. Army in his younger days…even if he did not continue his military career…*cough*….

Happy 4th of July!

I remember especially my two grandfathers and their service for our freedom.

And now a word from the American Romantic author & my literary hero, Edgar Allan Poe….


But list, O list,- so soft and low
Thy lover’s voice tonight shall flow,
That, scarce awake, thy soul shall deem
My words the music of a dream.
Thus, while no single sound too rude
Upon thy slumber shall intrude,
Our thoughts, our souls- O God above!
In every deed shall mingle, love.
