~Sonnet:Edgar
(1809-1849)



Today in history, great day you see
Not only we are celebrating MLK day,
But 'cause long ago,a day like today;
Great poet Edgar A.Poe was born too

On a winter day to this world he came,
Both of his parents were actors,died young;
Born in Boston, great writer; poet b'came
Resided in England till few years sprung

Attended university back home 'gain,
For only a year he did it they claim;
Edgar's drinking, gambling,has seized his brain,
But in Boston his first book, brought him fame.

His fame as great author, poet, spread wide,
In Baltimore,Edgar Allen Poe, died.
