National Poetry Month Challenge - Day 7


Give a quote from a poem or your favorite poem.

From "Lenore" by Edgar Allan Poe

Ah, broken is the golden bowl! the spirit flown forever!
Let the bell toll!- a saintly soul floats on the Stygian river;
And, Guy de Vere, hast thou no tear?- weep now or nevermore!
See! on yon drear and rigid bier low lies thy love, Lenore!
Come! let the burial rite be read- the funeral song be sung!-
An anthem for the queenliest dead that ever died so young-
A dirge for her the doubly dead in that she died so young.

A favorite poem of mine and the beginning is my favorite. It just is.

Come back for tomorrow's Challenge!
