Edgar Allan Poe Poems | Desert Girls Vintage: Halloween Inspiration: Edgar Allen Poe

My absolute favorite Edgar Allen Poe poem of all time! Actually my favorite poem period.

"You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have the right to be here.  And whether or not it is clear to you, there is no doubt that the universe is unfolding as it should."

"Desiderata" (Latin: "desired things") Despite the myth that it was found in a Baltimore church in 1692 ,is centuries old and of unknown origin it is in fact prose poem by American writer Max Ehrmann. Beautiful words, Worth building a life around.

life quote, inspiration, Unitarian, Harvard, William Ellery Channing (1780 - 1842)

these words bear truth of my soul. I am convinced they speak many lengths of truths in how I have intended to live my life. Hope someone remembers to read this at my celebration of life.
