Dad loved to read….
(some favorite excerpts follow)
“All things are possible.” (Luke 18:27)
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.
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.
