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.

JC,

Quotes from some of the masters. Lucky you had a father who introduced you to them. It's a shame they are not more widely read today. Good of you to remind us.

Lovely JC. You have lovely memories of your dad. I haven't read any of Edgar Allan Poe except that he was a writer of horrific tales. This almost sounds like a love poem. Or did Annabel Lee have a terrible ending.
