Ok, so I'm not sure why it was posted three time...I'm not THAT excited about poetry.

Hey Katie,
Thanks so much! Jenn and I would like to work with you, but do we need more people to join our group? Any ideas on what our topic should be? Our group will present this day, and we will work on finding two more people! Thanks!

HEY TRISH, APRIL, ERIN and SHANNA....

For whatever reason, none of my emails are getting through.. Trish if you're making our program, which I guess??

I am going to read :

This part of...
THE SLEEPER by Edgar Allen Poe
here it is for that printout...

'Neath which thy slumb'ring sould lies hid, That o'er
the floor and down the wall, Like ghosts the shadows
rise and fall! Oh, lady dear, hast thous no fear? Why
and what art thou dreaming here? Sure thou art come
p'er far-off seas, A wonder to these garden trees!
Strange is thy pallor! strange thy dress! Strange,
above all, thy length of tress, And this all solemn
silentness!

The lady sleeps! Oh, may her sleep, Which is enduring,
so be deep! Heaven have her in its sacred keep! This
chamber changed for one more holy, This bed for one
more melancholy, I pray to God that she may lie
Forever with unopened eye, While the dim sheeted
ghosts go by!

My love, she sleeps! Oh, may her sleep, As it is
lasting, so be deep! Soft may the worms about her
creep! Far in the forest, dim and old, For her may
some tall vault unfold -- Some vault that oft hath
flung its black And winged pannels fluttering back,
Triumphant, o'er the crested palls, Of her grand
family funerals -- Some sepulchre, remote, alone,
Against whose portal she hath thrown, In childhood,
many an idle stone -- Some tomb fromout whose sounding
door She ne'er shall force an echo more, Thrilling to
think, poor child of sin! It was the dead who groaned
within.

1845.
