Favorite Poe poems: "The Raven", "The Bells", and "Annabel Lee."
The latter I have memorized because a girl in my 6th grade class recited it in the school poetry competition, and we contestants rehearsed as a group every day in class. I also memorized "Charge of the Light Brigade" this way. I won the contest, btw, with an original poem, "The Lazy Crew." A few months ago, I re-connected on Facebook with the girl-now-woman who recited "Annabel Lee" who says that she is a professional speaker and trainer today because she was inspired by my courage in reciting an original poem like that for a large crowd. Who knew, LOL???
I wore a full costume and and had a sword made of cardboard covered in tinfoil. Ah, memories...
