Halloween in Baltimore

Halloween in Charm City is marked by a very special tradition. The tragic figure Edgar Allen Poe is buried in downtown Baltimore. He is known for the macabre in his stories and poetry.

Every year in the middle of the night an anonymous visitor leaves a bottle of cognac and a single red rose on Poe’s grave in honor of the author’s life and works.

My favorite of Poe’s poems are “Annabel Lee” and “Nevermore,” from which the Ravens derive their name.
