Poem of The Week

Edgar Allan Poe is best known for his haunting poetry about death, but the Hymn shows a brighter, less gothic view of death. Even though Poe was not a Catholic, he revered Mary as his mother. 

Edgar Allan Poe
AT morn — at noon — at twilight dim —
Maria! thou hast heard my hymn!
In joy and woe — in good and ill —
Mother of God, be with me still!
When the Hours flew brightly by,
And not a cloud obscured the sky,
My soul, lest it should truant be,
Thy grace did guide to thine and thee;
Now, when storms of Fate o'ercast
Darkly my Present and my Past,
Let my Future radiant shine
With sweet hopes of thee and thine!

Waking Rose Playlist

My dear friend Katherine and I wrote an article for Ink and Fairydust web magazine about two months ago. We waited with baited breath to know wether it would be included or not.... I never received a response to my email asking about it's status. Today we got our answer in the form of a printed article! Our pretty little playlist resides on page 27!

Go read it! Go now, I can see that you are still here!

Look who's back!

Yes, I am the one who is back! Well maybe... I need to start blogging more, it's good practice for a writer. So I am going to *try* to blog once a week with something interesting about my life. So is there anything about me you'd like to know more about?

Edit: Incase you noticed, yes I did change the name of my blog... the other one failed and so does this one.... but I am very bad at names.
