One hundred and sixty seven years ago, Edgar Allan Poe published a poem about a talking raven and a student distraught over the loss of his love named Lenore. To this day it is one of the most popular poems ever written.
It's a spooky poem with a supernatural vibe, making it perfect for Halloween. I did a Raven (imagine the blackbird is a Raven) scene two years ago and decided to do it again this year. It's the only use I have for my antique black typewriter. :) I like to imagine that Edgar Allan stepped away from his typewriter while in the process of typing his poem--never to return. Over the years cobwebs have formed over the entire table.
Certain unfortunates have met their demise while attempting to loot the uninhabited home.
A ghost or two now hang around the old place.
A boo bunting -- just because...
I bet Edgar Allan would be quite amused to find that people in 2012 are using his poem as inspiration to decorate their homes.
