Since today is the anniversary of when Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe was originally published in 1849, I wanted to share it along with a graphic I made in 2014 😁

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;

Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
Here’s a video of me reading a poem that I wrote 12 years ago for a K-LOVE radio contest & uploaded to YouTube for submission. 😃
My grandmother passed away the day before July 4th in 2018. So I ended up creating this memorial page to put in my planner one year later in 2019.
Below is this poem that I included on the page and read at her funeral.
