The Virtual Poe Toaster

May this Christmas Eve find you blessed with holiday spirit! Should you require a bit more urging into the yuletide mood, below, for your enjoyment, is a parody of The Raven involving sentient plum pudding, first published in "Tit-Bits" on December 23, 1882.

Listen, all ! I tell what happened on the night of Christmas Day,
After I'd been eating pudding in a very reckless way.
Just as Christmas Day was dying, as I on my bed was lying,
When to slumber I was trying, when I'd just begun to snore,
I became aware of something rolling on my chamber floor—
Of a most mysterious rumbling, rolling on my chamber floor.
Only this and nothing more!

Partly waking, partly sleeping, all my flesh with horror creeping,
I could hear it tumbling, leaping, rolling on my chamber floor;
Underneath the bedclothes sinking, I betook myself to thinking
If it might not be a kitten that had entered at the door;
'Yes,' said I, 'it is a kitten, entered at the open door.
This it is and nothing more.'

Presently my heart grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
'Cat,' said I, 'or kitten, kindly stop that rolling on the floor.'
But it was most irritating, for the sound was unabating.
On my nerves for ever grating was the rolling on the floor;
Till at last I cried in anguish, 'Stop that rolling I implore;'
And a voice said, 'Nevermore.'

This convinced me of my error, up I rose in greatest terror,
Certain that 'twas not a kitten that had spoken just before;
Then into the darkness peering, shivering, wondering, doubting, fearing,
I could dimly see a pudding rolling on my chamber floor;
I could see a big plum pudding rolling on my chamber floor;
May I see it nevermore!

From its mouth a vapour steaming, while its fiery eyes were gleaming,
Gleaming fiercely bright, and seeming fixedly to scan me o'er;
Soon it rolled and rumbled nearer, and its aim becoming clearer,
I could see that it intended jumping higher than the floor;
Yes, it jumped upon my chest, and when in pain I gave a roar,
All it said was, 'Nevermore.'

Though my back was nearly broken, this reply so strangely spoken.
Seemed to me to be a token that it wished for something more;
So my thoughts in words expressing, I began my sins confessing,
Saying I had eaten pudding many a time in days of yore,
But although I'd eaten pudding many a time in days of yore,
I would eat it nevermore.

Still in spite of my confessing, that plum pudding kept on pressing,
Pressing with its weight tremendous ever on my bosom's core.
Till I cried, 'O, monster mighty, in my work I'm often flighty.
But, if you will now forgive me, I'll work hard at classic lore!'
At the end of this vacation I'll work hard at classic lore,
Quoth the pudding 'Nevermore.'

' Be that word our sign of parting, pudding!' then I shrieked, upstarting,
' Get thee back — get off my stomach, roll again upon the floor!'
Thus I struggled, loudly screaming, till I found I had been dreaming.
Dreaming like a famous poet once had dreamt in days of yore;
But although 'twas like the poet's dream he dreamt in days of yore.
May I dream it nevermore!"

Thank you to the World of Poe Blog for furnishing this yuletide parody poem.

It's okay to support social distancing but still feel sad that life is in limbo. You can support your nurses and doctors and also feel bummed on behalf of your grandparents and your missed connections. Sadness is not a contest, it's ok to feel it all.

Witches Night

Poland does not celebrate Halloween, but Poland sets its cemeteries 'on fire' and - believe me - those cemeteries are the most beautiful places to be at the beginning of November.

1st November- All Saints' Day and 2nd November - All Souls' Day are days when almost everyone visits graves of their family members. The gravestones are decorated with colorful chrysanthemums in full bloom (in Poland those flowers are associated with this particular occasion) and millions of grave candles (zniczy), which symbolize the presence of God and reminds of the prayer that has been said in a moment of reflexion for those who passed before us.

This Christian celebration of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day roots in a belief that there is a powerful spiritual bond between those in heaven and the living.

Those days are national holidays in Poland. This special time of the year creates a very melancholic atmosphere full of spiritual contemplation about those who are not with us in this world anymore.

If you are planning a trip anywhere in Poland at the beginning of November - make sure to have a look at how beautiful and full of light are Polish cemeteries.

This is the only small clip I got from my Raven Dance at Mask of The Red Death...and it’s far away. Sigh, I think I’m jinxed from ever getting good video of my shows at this event. 🤣🤪

BUT, dude with the great arms is taking video! I need to find him! ☺️

“I was laying in bed one night and I thought ‘I’ll just quit...to hell with it.’ And another little voice inside me said ‘Don’t quit...save that tiny little ember of spark.’ And never give them that spark because as long as you have that spark, you can start the greatest fire again.”
Charles Bukowski

Nikolai Astrup - Midsummer Eve Bonfire’, 1917.

So I just noticed that my brother or his wife gave me a low review on this page (I can’t see who because they are both blocked) because I gave him a low rating on his Halloween Festival page. BUT, he ACTUALLY has bad business practices and never pays all of his entertainment, etc.

So, no stress in my life from this...I KNOW I’m better than his petty uncalled for low rating.
