short collection of my father's favorite excerpts-I miss him but am reminded of him when I read.


Dad loved to read….
       (some favorite excerpts follow)
The Bible-
“All things are possible.” (Luke 18:27)     
Or Poe-
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.
        Perhaps Landor-
Death stands above me, whispering low
    I know not what into my ear;
Of this strange language all I know
    Is, there is not a word of fear.
        And of course, Byron-
In secret we met—
    In silence I grieve
That my heart could forget,
    Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
    After long years,
How should I greet thee?
    With silence and tears.
