ALONE BY Edgar allan Poe

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were - I have not seen
As others saw - I could not bring
My passions from a common spring -
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow- I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone -
And all I loved - I loved alone -
Then - in my childhood - in the dawn
Of a most stormy life - was drawn
From ev'ry depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still -
From the torrent, or the fountain -
From the red cliff of the mountain -
From the sun that round me roll'd
In its autumn tint of gold -
From the lighting of the sky
As it pass'd me flying by -
From the thunder and the storm -
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view -

Royal Undies

Queen Elizabeth’s Undies for Sale

It’s just what you always wanted: A man in Florida is auctioning off underwear that once belonged to Queen Elizabeth II. Joseph de Bicske Dobronyl snagged the panties after Elizabeth left them behind on a private airplane while visiting Chile in 1968. He died in June and they will soon be available as part of an estate sale. They’re hoping to get $9,000, which is the price Queen Victoria’s panties fetched in 2008.
