There was a birthday bash on the 15th at The Poe Museum.
(Which I haven't visited yet, surprisingly, since I'm in VA.)
His actual birthday was yesterday though.
At least that's what the Internet says.
His gravestone disagrees, as you can see...
It states he was born today, the 20th. Wonder which is true?
By the way, I took that photo myself!
When I visited the Westminster Hall Burying Grounds in 09.
Here's a shot of the other side...
[Fact: His aunt/mother-in-law and wife are also buried there.]
Anyway, this seems like a perfect time to present my petite Poe!
(He's one of two actually.)
Resurrected and reunited with his lost love Lenore
Hopefully Annabel Lee won't find out!
Here he is resting with her...
And now I'll leave you with my favorite Poe inspired song...
