The Raven

The Raven

"Be that word our sign in parting, bird or fiend," I shrieked, upstarting- "Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore! Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken! Leave my loneliness unbroken!-quit the bust above my door! Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!" Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

    @holgardo my mum used to let me choose any book I wanted. When I was 6, I chose Poe because the cover was red with a tree and raven silhouette! I still love and have the book.

    Oh! @grindhousegirl you make me remember the first novel that my dad read me when I was that age: The Hobbit. I'm not sure where is that book today, maybe lost in my mother's house. But I can clearly remember the book, the image on the cover, even the editorial. Normally I'm not attached to objects ( not even books that I love) but finding that particular edition for my shelf would be beautiful.

    @holgarado ... it's funny how children have such visual memory! Even when not attached to the object the nostalgia increases it's significance! xx
